Lisa writes: “The Five Themes is the foundation for my geography class, so I was ecstatic when the videos appeared in the Flocabulary library.” Fun fact: we built our geography content based on teacher requests! Keep the suggestions comin’, folks!

Kelly Harper, 3rd grade teacher from Texas, uses Flocabulary across subjects, but used her post to walk through Flocabulary lesson plan using our elementary science unit,  “The Three States of Matter,” as an example. Check out her post for a step-by-step guide on building a lesson with Flocab!

lisa-mims-roundLisa Mims was hooked on Flocab the day she saw “Five Elements of a Story.” She focused her post on teaching vocabulary across the curriculum with Flocabulary.

Their lists are made up of grade appropriate vocabulary and go from K-8, up to 9-12 SAT words. The great part is that I am able to differentiate instruction without added stress.”

Third grade educator from Virginia, Doris Young, uses Flocabulary as a way to combat her students’ “stray mind syndrome,” as she so cleverly puts it. She hits on what we take the most pride in doing as an ed tech program: increasing student engagement.

It is a great hook into any lesson, but because this site offers us so much more than just a catchy song or lyric, it can also be used as the core component of your teaching.”

As a school technology specialist, Flocabulary saves me so much time–I have to create lessons to teach across K-6, so I love being able to go onto Flocabulary, search by topic, then narrow the results by grade level.”
