My students need to connect to every lesson in a way that will reinforce core knowledge and skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Fifth grade at RES is all about student choice in approaching learning in a way that creates meaning. It is a personal goal for me, as their teacher, to give them the tools to connect with the content they are expected to be responsible for.
This group of students is excited by unique and memorable technology based lessons.
Catchy songs and interactive whiteboard lessons are highly engaging for my students. Knowing words of a poem, story, song, or passage is one of their favorite learning tools! A few ways they enjoy using these skills are to whisper to themselves during an exam, record and insert into a digital presentation, or battle in a learning game.
If our class has the opportunity to use Flocabulary it will benefit student engagement in all content areas! It allows for memorable introductions to new topics, practice of skills through use of videos, vocabulary games, and lyric writing, and individualized learning through student chosen mastery projects.
Engaging students in the learning process greatly increases their attention and focus, motivates them to practice higher-level critical thinking skills, and promotes meaningful learning experiences.
In fifth grade, we also work hard to build our language skills so that we are able to participate in a range of collaborative discussions. Weekly current events on Flocabulary will cue these beneficial discussions and help students make text to world connections.
As my students say..."Is it Flocabulary time yet?!"
