Flocab's in the House - FREE trial

Do you use Flocabulary in your classroom? If not, you're missing out! When my fifth grade students enter (before going to their enhancement class), we start the day with an upbeat video (or two or three) from Flocab. There's not ONE song that my students haven't loved. You can see heads bobbing, smiles growing, learning occurring, and feet tapping.

Check out my students interacting with a video pertaining to Point of View.



Each Monday, we enjoy "The Week in Rap Jr." There's also a Week in Rap for older students. We learn a lot about the world's major happenings from these informative songs. Check out an example of "Week in the Rap Jr.



One of my favorite components of Flocabulary is the ability to create classes. Flocabulary gives you a unique code for each class. Students will then enter that code to JOIN YOUR CLASS. You can see below that I've created five classes. By doing this, I can assign each child a video to watch. Even better...a quiz can be taken for a snapshot, or formative assessment, to see if students are getting the concept.


Here's a quick shot of my students completing a "digital classroom" lesson. Check out the total engagement. All students are working at their own pace. How beautiful is that? Once they submit their quiz, I can assess the data to see who need additional help with that particular concept, or lesson.



So I guess you can say that I'm a full-fledged Flocabulary fanatic (wow, check out that alliteration!) I highly recommend using Flocabulary in the classroom.  Right now, they are offering an extended 75-day FREE trial for those that sign up using the following link.
