What’s new on Flocabulary.com?

We are SO excited to finally share our new website, which is lookin’ fresh from its back-to-school makeover. You’ll probably notice that everything is prettier, but there have been some major feature upgrades as well. Make sure you check out all of the handy new tools in our toolbox!:

1. CCSS Alignment Guide

We know that Common Core alignment is a major concern for many of our teachers. That’s why we made it easier than ever to browse Flocabulary units by Common Core standard. With our new Standards Alignment guide, you can browse by ELA or math as well as by grade level. See at a glance what videos we have for your specific standard. Explore now!

2. Revamped Unit Pages

Our unit pages are easier to navigate than ever before. You can now turn on Classroom View to optimize the site for projection in front of the class. Menus will instantly disappear, leaving a clean view of the video and the lyrics for you to share with your students. Videos are now higher quality and larger. Clickable Lyrics are back and better than ever; click on a highlighted lyric to bring up an info box and learn more. You’ll also notice that our interactive features — Challenge Questions and Fill in the Blanks — are now easily accessible via tabs on the top of each unit. Printable lyrics, activities and tests can be found on the right of the unit under “Handouts.” Below the handouts, you can quickly view recommended grade levels, CCSS alignment and a unit description.

3. Favorites

Do you find yourself returning to the same unit over and over again? Or wanting to have a set of videos ready to roll for a lesson? Now you can easily save favorite units to one place. On any unit, click the Star next to “Add Favorite,” and that unit will be saved to your Favorites. Click the Star button on the top toolbar, next to “My Account,” to see the videos you’ve saved.

4. Search

Looking for a specific unit by name or topic? Finding the right unit has never been easier. Use our new search toolbar to quickly find material that fits your needs.

5. How It Works

And if you’re looking for inspiration, make sure to check out the “Projects and Games” tab for out-of-the-box ideas.

6. Flocab, Month by Month

7. Spread the Love
