If you are reading this on Flocabulary’s blog, I think you already believe that we learn (and teach!) better when we are having fun. And few lessons are more fun than when we can use a Flocabulary video to get us singing the learning objectives (and shaking whatever body parts we feel comfortable with) to the beats. Perhaps you are also an academic core subject teacher who already uses art whenever possible in a lesson, because like the bumper sticker says, "Without ART the Earth is just EH."
At Flocabulary, we’re always looking for exciting ways to boost student engagement. After hearing from educators (and a vision to try something new), we’re excited to share an initial roll-out of karaoke-style Flocabulary videos! Now, your students can test their hip-hop chops with the Flocab pros by rapping along to actual Flocabulary videos. We’ve created karaoke-style videos for four popular Flocabulary units for you to try out with your students. Watch them below:
Educators across the country and around the world use Flocabulary to engage students and help them achieve. And how educators and students use Flocabulary is quite different classroom to classroom.
We recently shared eight components of a strong balanced literacy program on the Flocab blog, and some of you reached out to ask us how Flocabulary fits in with these various balanced literacy components. With over 800 units featuring reading passages, writing activities and assessments, Flocabulary is a great fit for any balanced literacy program!
Every Friday morning, teachers find a shiny new Week in Rap or Week in Rap Junior announcement sitting in their inbox. Our weekly current events units are a favorite among Flocabulary users, and we hear (and see!) lots of excitement from teachers and students every week.
