My Students

My students are energetic and enthusiastic learners. They come to school with a multitude of abilities and aptitudes reflecting their diverse backgrounds. Many are still acquiring fluency in English.

Although they come from a community with fewer privileges than others in Silicon Valley, my students have unlimited potential.

We are working hard every day to achieve so that they can compete with the best of the students in Silicon Valley. Our students deserve to have quality materials and experiences to help them achieve their personal best.

My Project

Flocabulary is a website that is a treasure trove of hip-hop videos to teach students any subject from multiplying fractions to figurative language in poetry. Now that our class has discovered it, we can't let it go.

The students are totally addicted to the rhymes and the rhythms of the videos without realizing they are learning academic content.

I use the Flocabulary videos as an introduction into a topic, a reinforcer of the content and anytime as a transition song to go from one activity to the next. Some of our favorites are the "Math Term Party" where they learn about the meanings of the words: sum, difference, product, quotient, and the coefficient in the context of them being guests to a party. Another classic is "Mesoamerica" in which my students all rap along to and consistently request when we have our "Throwback Thursdays" to watch prior videos from content that has already passed.

Almost every topic we are learning in our 5th grade curriculum is found on Flocabulary. The videos are so engaging and loaded with language, vocabulary, and music to make the students really memorize the information. The website also has lyric sheets and activities to solidify the learning. Many of my students love hip-hop music and having something that reflects their interests is so important. It really has become an indispensable part of my instructional toolkit to engage students. Unfortunately, due to a limited school budget projection, we won't be able to subscribe to the website next year. Please help us keep the rhymes and music going on Flocabulary for one more year!
