After mentioning my use of Flocabulary as a component to several of my lessons, many of you have asked for more information. It’s way to difficult to explain Flocabulary in a short email response, so here goes this post! If you’re wondering if it’s worth your time and attention, the answer is YES.
**Disclaimer** I do not participate in affiliate marketing, nor do I gain anything from your subscribing to Flocabulary other than the great feeling I’ll have that I’ve shared something valuable with you and your students.
1. Teach Reading Skills in New Ways
How many of these skills do you teach? Flocabulary has a unique and different way of explaining each and every one of them to your students.
I know that with my 6th graders, I teach plot structure ALL YEAR LONG. Can we really ever have enough clever ways of teaching and reviewing plot structure?
2. The Supporting Materials are RIGHT THERE
3. The Lyrics are a Lesson in Themselves
Other topics include Parts of Speech (all together AND each on its own), Capitalization, Punctuation, Commas, Subjects & Predicates, Active & Passive Voice, Word Choice, Roots, Suffixes, Synonyms & Antonyms, and more…
5. Current Events ~ The Week in Rap
There is NO BETTER lesson to use for assembly days, mass days (for us Catholic school teachers), and those days where you won’t see each class the same length of time but need to do something useful with the time you have.
Here’s a peek at this week’s skill sheets.
So much content from one three-minute video. *sigh*
