Yes, I hum as I rotate the wheel to the next problem. And yes, I purposely chose problems far from each other on the wheel so the Wheel of Fortune theme could be fully completed in my glorious nerdy humming display.
I got this from a grant I participated in a few summers ago from Jennifer Clayton and Valerie Blackburn. It was probably my favorite takeaway! It also allowed for more problems on my one-page notes too so... extra practice!!
I first gave a top sheet of the 3 Questions and then had them connect the wheel directly to ther notebook. This was to conserve paper.
I discovered that students are not very versed in brads/brass fasteners so I started doing it whole page which made it easier to use in the notebook.
The wheel perfectly fits in the blank space and the page perfectly fits in a spiral notebook!
I have them put the brad right through the middle! These notes are always a hit and the students periodically play with the wheel. It's also easy to refer back to these notes because they are so unique!
They, of course, could be adapted to any note or activity!

Enjoy! And I'd love to hear feedback or any other things you create with it!
