The Sentence Wheel™ mobile App is being created with continuous feedback from ESOL professionals like you.

It provides ESOL Instructors with an engaging way to stimulate student interest in learning proper sentence construction. Sentence Wheel™ also provides students with a fun and easy way to practice sentence construction between classes.
The current BETA version of the Sentence Wheel™ was funded with a grant from the National Science Foundation and is designed for Adult ESOL students taking intermediate level classes. As we are able to finance further development we will add new functions and new content for new levels.
Sentence Wheel™ is free for your classroom use. To help us improve the App, we ask that you provide feedback and suggestions for improvement – use the download buttons on our home page to get Sentence Wheel installed on your preferred mobile device. Or simply go to iTunes or Google Play, search for Sentence Wheel and hit "download". Have your students download Sentence Wheel™ so they can follow you in lessons.
