Flocabulary is an excellent educational platform we discovered through Graphite. Flocabulary provides teachers with a digital library of educational music videos (hip-hop songs) to use in class to engage and inspire their k-12 students.’Flocabulary has nearly 600 units in all subjects for grades K-12. All ELA, vocabulary, and math units are aligned to Common Core State Standards.’
As a teacher you can use Flocabulary videos for a variety of instructional purposes that include ‘ introduction, enrichment, differentiated instruction and test prep.’ Most of the music videos included in this site are accompanied with a variety of materials such as song lyrics, online activities, and exercises.
Here is a quick tour of Flocabulary lesson sequence:
1- 'Flocabulary presents academic content in a highly-engaging, contemporary format. Videos let the topic speak for itself, providing students with both visual and aural exposure.'
2- 'Each video includes additional resources to review and enrich: Use challenge questions for a quick formative assessment. Learn more while building literacy skills with interactive lyrics. And review key terms with fill in the blanks. You can also print activities and tests to formally assess student learning.'
3- 'Now it's time for students to write. Students can write their own rhymes, and even perform them over beats. Additionally, you can extend any lesson with Common Core-aligned writing activities, lessons and games.'
Flocabulary provides affordable individual plans for teachers and parents as well as discounted group plans for schools and districts. Learn more about pricing plans from this page.
