How I Use It
I use Flocabulary to reinforce concepts and skills. My students are completely engaged by Flocabulary and can't wait for the days we watch and "rap" in class. I often hear the different songs we've reviewed in the hallway, even after class! The videos are very easy to incorporate into a lesson. The resources included with each song are great, too. Teachers can chose what they would like to use with the video, if they chose to use any supplementary materials at all.
My Take
I think Flocabulary is an excellent resource. It adds life and pizazz to ELA lessons that might be more difficult to present (parts of speech, point of view, types of verbs). We know that our students are able to memorize line after line of their favorite songs, so why not tap into this ability for our own purposes? By using Flocabulary, I can address different modalities and serve my visual and auditory learners better. Awesome resource!
