Raise State Reading Test Scores with Flocabulary!

So excited to share a new tech resource tool that we are using in our classroom!
 !FLOCABULARY!
I had been searching for new ways to improve vocabulary instruction because our district's scores have been declining in this area. I ran into this site, signed up for a FREE TRIAL and I am now a proud owner of a 1 year license! 



Flocabulary presents academic content in a highly-engaging, contemporary format. Let the topic speak for itself, providing students with both visual and aural exposure. And videos aren’t only for introducing new topics; use them to review and provide ongoing enrichment as well.

If you have not heard of Flocabulary, I highly suggest you visit the link below to find out ALL about it!  http://www.flocabulary.com/how-it-works/


I am most excited about the The Word Up Project. It's Common Core aligned and proven to raise scores on state reading tests! 

The Word Up Project teaches interdisciplinary Tier 2 words to boost reading skills across the curriculum. Engaging videos, exercises, games and quizzes provide a comprehensive resource for direct vocabulary instruction. Word Up is research-basedCCSS-aligned and proven to raise scores on state reading tests.

Students love the videos and printable lyrics. This is our 3rd week using Flocabulary so I am sure I will be blogging about it again soon!

  1. I love love Flocabulary! I have been using it with students and they love it. They love the format and can easily remember all the information even after one time of playing the video. I have also been showing it to teachers and they are amazed and pumped about it. Thanks for sharing your love of Flocabulary!!

    Thanks,

  2. Have you used the WORD UP Program? Just wondered if you followed the suggested schedule and how you integrated it into your daily schedule?
