How to make a wheel?

  1. Color the wheel (both parts) if using black and white or print on astrobright paper. Cardstock is preferable!

  2. Cut out parts in the upper part so that you have a hole for a homophone in a smaller circle and a part for its “partner”.

  3. Laminate if necessary.

  4. Place the part with cut out holes on the top.

  5. Connect two parts of the wheel with a brass fastener.

How to use?

Turn the upper part. Then a student should name a homophone to a word (he / she may spell it).
