Spinning Wheels for Classroom Management can be also used for classroom rewards and center games. If you want to use if as a reward system,  write different prizes on the wheel, such as pencil with eraser, candy, spin again, bring own device (fun Friday) mystery prize, etc. That makes it convenient to change the prizes as often as you want.

Students will really look forward to spinning the wheel. You just write on them because each color panel has a dry erase surface.

Motivating students to read with a ticketing system: When each student reads a book and passes the quiz they can spin the wheel to earn a prize. They can earn tickets to spend on toys/snacks/books, etc. Write things like: free candy prize, earn 1 ticket, earn 2 tickets, 3 tickets, go back one space or forward one space, lose a ticket, etc. I have to really give some props to this stretegy because it really helps the reluctant readers to participate. After they see their peers win 3 tickets, they become willing to work for it. Download free tickets here from my TpT collection.
