Product Description

This game can be used to select students for class discussions, presentations, or group projects. English teachers can use this game for helping students with creative writing: choosing names for stories; creating character sketches based on names, writing scripts etc,. It can also be used to assign seats for projects or presentations.


Avoid the “why do I have to go next?” or “why did you put me with them?” questions. The wheel decides – not you!


This guide provides step-by-step instructions for adding student names, playing, saving and sharing the game.


Solves the problem of students not volunteering and makes a game out of the question “who will go next?” This makes the process fun and exciting for both students and teachers.


  • Add names and spin a virtual wheel to randomly select a name from your class
  • After a name is chosen you can remove it so that it is not selected again
  • It is free and does not require a registration
  • Embed it into a blog or website or share using a QR code

  2. I can’t wait to use this tomorrow in my classroom. I teach 1st grade and I know my kids will love this. It’s much better than pulling something with their name on it out of a basket!!

  5. This is awesome! Thank you so much! I am a grad student in education (so I love the “price”!) and was using the “popsicle stick method” during teaching experiences. This is going to be so much better and fun to implement!! Thanks again!
