How I Use It
I have yet to use this product in the classroom, but an overview of the website shows that Flocabulary would be a great addition to any lesson. I would most likely choose to use it as an introduction to material and as an engaging hook for a lesson. The additional resources that accompany each song such as full written lyrics, fill in the blanks, and quizzes would effectively assist the instructor in not only presentation, but also in assessment. In fact, different pieces of the available resources for any given instruction can be used throughout the lesson. For example, the first part of the lesson can include the song and lyrics while the quiz can ater be used at the end of the lesson as an exit ticket.
I really like this product and even though I have yet to use in a classroom setting I can definitely see myself utilizing this product. I would be using this product in a history class and so this type of positive student engagement can prove very useful. While the songs that encompass historical content are useful, the weekly current events material are equally intriguing. This is a very good way to help keep the students engaged and knowledgeable about the current goings on in our world. I can't speak from direct experience using this prodect, but I can see how the students would respond very well to its classroom application and demand more and more flocabulary songs and resources to be used to supplement existing curriculum.
