Online Interactive Speaking and Writing Activity for Foreign Language Practice

Screen Shot 2016-01-11 at 6.11.49 AMOn Wheel Decide, teachers can type in the words that they want displayed on the wheel and on each click the wheel spins and lands on a random word.  There are so many uses for this online tool.  Fill in verbs and students write or say a sentence; type in vocabulary words and students write sentences or say a sentence in small groups or pairs; type in topics for pairs or small groups to use as speaking prompts; type in student names for setting up groups…so many possibilities.

The teacher can even save the wheels that he/she creates for future use.  It takes only minutes to create a wheel and you will be using it instantly.  And the best part is that it’s free.





Take a spin of this wheel that I created to do a review activity with a 7th grade class.

This wheel is from an activity with Spanish verbs.

    Thanks! How do you save it? How do I embed it in a PPT?

      Sign in and create a free account. You can embed in a website, but not ppt, though you could put a link.

    where do I go to sign up? Can I use this off line?

      I believe you can sign up using your Facebook account on the home page. It is housed on the website, so I think you need to be online to use it.

        Would the kids have to access Facebook to play it? That would not be accepted in our school setting.

        Not at all. Just send them the link or share your screen. In the physical classroom I project it.
