How I Use It
I use Flocabulary as a hook activity in math and language arts. Since the first time I showed my class a grammar video, they have asked daily to watch the rap videos in all content areas. What I like about Flocabulary is that each lesson is not limited to just the video. There are interactive resources for each lesson/topic such as: Challenge Questions, Interactive Lyrics, and Fill in the Blanks. You can also print activities and tests to assess student learning. Having these resources is a terrific way to assess student understanding and give students additional practice. I have also used the "Challenge Questions" as an exit ticket for students after teaching a specific concept. Students have used Flocabulary as a study tool to review various topics. The Flocab "Month by Month" is also a student favorite as they have different videos and activites that correlate with all the events for each month.
I would highly recommend Flocabulary as a teaching tool in every classroom. It is extremely easy to use and I like that users can search a lesson by topic, CCSS and/or grade level. Students can access the website from desktop computers, iPhones, iPads and other mobile devices. Anyone can sign up for a free trial for 14-30 days. After the free trial has expired, there is a monthly fee for an individual, school or district membership. I would like to see Flocab include a few more topics in math and language arts.
