Mrs. Welch from San Antonio TX is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

“Mrs. Welch, why can’t we see Flocabulary anymore?”

My students need continuing access to Flocabulary.com to increase vocabulary knowledge and student engagement. They also need some earbuds to be able to view the videos on their own.

My Students

Our students celebrate their individuality and work to build a strong community of learners. Students are allowed a voice in the classroom which enriches their education by building critical thinking, problem-solving, and higher-level thinking skills.

My students are energetic and enthusiastic when they take the lead in classroom instruction.

Approximately three-quarters of the students in our elementary school receive free or reduced-price lunch. Around twenty percent of the students in our district are from military families. The majority of our students are low income and high risk. However, what they lack in income they make up for in heart and spirit. They enjoy reading, math, science, problem solving, and journaling about their experiences.

The learners in my classroom differ cognitively, linguistically, socially, emotionally, and physically, creating unique individuals. Therefore, I need your help to provide my students with a fun and engaging access to Flocabulary.com

My Project

Old teaching styles are great, but not sufficient in terms of sustaining a learners' attention. Furthermore interviews are done now on Skype, and we live in a world where technology is an intricate part of our society. By not providing students an opportunity to interact with technology we are doing our students a disservice.

What is Flocabulary?

Think of it as a contemporary “SchoolHouse Rock.” Using the natural teaching tools of music, rhythm, and rhyme, Flocabulary makes academic content more interesting, engaging, and memorable for students. More than 20,000 schools use Flocabulary to teach, engage and assess students.

Knowledge of vocabulary is essential in building background knowledge when learning new skills and subjects.

“Researchers have found that students with greater prior knowledge learn more, remember more, and are more interested...than those who have less initial prior knowledge.”

• Johns Hopkins Center for Research and Reform in Education, 2016

Simply put this is important to me as a teacher because I am competing against Xbox, PlayStation, and a multimedia world. My students ask for Flocabulary lesson for most of the topics we discuss. It amazed me that when I would put on a Flocabulary lesson the kids would sing along. They were actually singing them in the hallways after class. It was a sad day when I had to let them know that the free trial had ended.
