How I Use It
This product is extremely easy to use for almost any subject in school. I use Flocabulary at least once a week; I play the songs during class drills and group projects. The songs play in the background, but I also project the videos on the screen. This way, my students can watch the videos as they listen along. The songs are catchy and my students are able to remember the lines. Singing the songs is great in retaining the information in any given video. Using Flocabulary is also great for homework assignments. Students can watch videos at home for homework and write their own reviews and see if it's helpful for them to study with. So far, a lot of students have listened to the songs on their own to study.
My Take
I really love this tool. It's so helpful in the classroom and the songs are catchy and easy to remember. The kids have a fun time singing along and it helps them study without it feeling overwhelming. A lot of songs are free, so that's a bonus. It's accessible at home and in the classroom. As well, many of my students like rap already. This makes Flocabulary more relatable to them. Also, the website is fun and easy to manage. It is really accessible as anyone can use it and it's easy to navigate. It's very kid friendly. I will say, the product is really great, but in order to access more tools, you'd have to buy an account. This is hard because vocab words, readings, and other tools from the site are not free. These would be great study tools for my students, but they aren't accessible for everyone. It would be nice if Flocabulary offered students something so that they could interact with the site more. The other tools the website offers would probably be great study tools.
