What are Common Core Standards for Flocabulary Language Arts?

The Common Core English Language Arts standards spiral learning in a smart way. A new concept is introduced in one grade, and then practiced in later grades as students work slowly and confidently toward mastery. And Flocabulary’s ELA songs and videos will help teachers to introduce and practice everything from vocabulary to grammar to reading and writing strategies. Read on to see the Common Core alignment for our ELA songs. Or view our math CCSSS alignment here.

    It appears there are eleven or twelve vocabulary songs for 2nd and 3rd grades. How long do the songs stay online? What if I really like one….will I beable to use it year to year?

    It also seems there are few songs other than vocabulary for 2nd grade. Most of the other categories are 3rd grade and up….correct?
