Activity 2 - Flocabulary Oversharing

Flocaublary is video platform that includes a library of songs set to the moving rhythms of hip hop beats. If you are used to hearing your students reciting the lyrics to their favorite songs, imagine them rapping the lyrics of a song based on the concepts you are teaching as well. Throw in the fact that our district pays for Flocabulary and you've got a win-win situation on your hands! Take a look at the Flocabulary Digital Citizenship Video and some of the new tools you can use with it.

Comprehension Activities

Flocabulary now has 4 comprehension activities for each video located on the buttons to the left of the video. Use and add to the vocabulary cards by clicking the Vocab icon. The Read & Respond option provides additional reading to support the video with response questions. If you are interested in getting data with less reading, the Quiz option is better for you. Use the Create option to allow your students to create their own rhyming video.
