I'm super excited to be sharing some news from the awesome folks over at Flocabulary. This is an amazing site that uses hip-hop music to teach lessons. You can find anything from weekly news, English, science, etc. Students enjoy the videos and can be heard singing them weeks later.
One of my students' favorite videos is the "Test-Taking Vocabulary". They love the beat and the twist ending. The video has lyrics, fill-in-the-blank lyrics, interactive lyric lesson, topic exercises, and a quiz. The extra resources can be printed, or they can be completed with the students on the smart board. The lyrics are an excellent text to conduct close reads with students.
