Flocabulary learning through music

I said I would elaborate more on my favorite websites for teaching, well Flocabulary.com has been my favorite for years.  It has only gotten better.  I teach ELAR and Social Studies and it has me covered with all my subjects.  And it is so funny when I pull my kids for small groups and they start rapping the songs to me saying we learned something.  🙂   They are continually adding new skills in reading and covers all the way up to high school so if you need a hook, brain break, or use it to teach a lesson you are covered.  I have used it in my lessons and the vocabulary as my word study during my literacy block.  I use the grammar videos to help enhance the lessons I have already taught and use the activities as guided or independent practice.

  1. Hello! I’ve been following your site for some time now and finally
    got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Houston Texas!
    Just wanted to say keep up the good work!


  2. I will right away take hold of your rss as I can not
    find your email subscription hyperlink or newsletter service.

    Do you have any? Please let me understand so that I could
    subscribe. Thanks.


  3. I love Flocabulary! As a fellow MC Educator, I love to play the videos and have my students try and fill in the blanks. I play the slowed down version first and then speed it up when they need to get the final few! They are engaged the whole time and I always find them rapping the songs when they think I can’t hear.
