If there’s one thing we love here at Flocab HQ, it’s teacher feedback. (Okay, we also love pie and Spanish lessons, but that’s something else entirely...) When we launched Read & Respond—our reading passages and prompts tool—this summer, we made it clear that we wanted to hear from you, the awesome educators who use and, in turn, help improve Flocabulary. Already, your feedback has inspired changes.
As you may have guessed, Flocab is a HUGE advocate for incorporating music into the classroom. It has been known to increase student engagement which, in turn, increases knowledge retention and student mastery. Need some creative ways to include music as a part of your instruction? We’ve compiled some popular and effective practices to get your students’ heads bobbing while they learn!
We’re always thinking about new ways to provide value to the Flocabulary educator community, and recently, we realized we could be supporting our educators by connecting them. After all, inspiring teachers, service providers, and administrators across the country share their creative ideas and experiences using Flocabulary with us all time. Now, we want to provide a way for these educators to share with one another. And what better outlet to connect them than through Twitter? Introducing: #FlocabChat.
Calling all Flocab lovers (Flovers!): Do you already share our resources with other educators? This fall we’ve started up a referral program to reward both our loyal fans and their buds. Now you can win prizes for sharing Flocabulary with your friends and colleagues at other schools!
By now, you may have read about our latest units, resources and features. We’ve given you much to explore, but this exciting, albeit hectic, back-to-school season might have you short on time. Have no fear! Fellow Flocab fans are here to help you make the most out of your classroom (lite) or school-wide subscription by providing tips and best practices that will effectively encourage your students to engage, create and master content across the curriculum. You, too, will have your Flocab classroom routine down pat in no time!
