Bringing Hip Hop to Vocabulary Instruction

My students need to utilize Flocabulary to widen their vocabularies and increase their test scores all while having fun!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

When you walk into my classroom, you may be overwhelmed by the amount of desks and children. Thirty third grade students fill up the room quickly!

Although I try my hardest, I am not Flash the super hero!

Tackling every personality, learning style, and level of understanding is not something I am going to be able to accomplish each day. Being one-to-one with iPads is a huge advantage that we are blessed with! We are able utilize these many times a day to ensure each student is actively learning.

My Project

Isn't it so much easier to remember a word when you have a catchy phrase or tune to go along with it? In the classroom, we spend so much instruction time teaching, discussing, and reviewing words only for the students to forget them! I hate wasting time! I hate wasting the student's attention...it is hard to get in the first place!

Flocabulary is the perfect solution!

Not only will my students be super excited to make it a part of our daily routine, Flocabulary will be an effective tool to learn words! It won't stop with Language Arts and Math, we will use this tool during intervention time and Science.

Who doesn't love a good rap anyways?
