Day in My Life

I saw something a friend shared on FB the other day about the day in the life of a teacher. So I thought I'd document my day. I picked Wednesday and took pictures throughout the day. Here is it!

@Flocabulary Love! Win 1 yr subscription here.

Do you know about Flocabulary? If not, then your students are going to love this!

I have been using Flocabulary for the last several years and it is by far my favorite resource for songs for my students. I am always looking for fun, catchy songs to share with my fifth grade students. We watch them over and over and by the time our unit is finished they can sing along with the entire song. 

I'll never forget the first Flocabulary video I stumbled upon, Five Things. Check it out!

When I saw it I knew my students were going to eat this up! So I played it for them and they started begging for more. So I started my subscription then and haven't regretted that decision. 

Flocabulary is always adding new content. Check here to see the new content added since Spring 2016. One of our favorite things is the Week in Rap. They do a rap that reviews all the current events for the week. These are posted by Friday morning so they are ready to share at the end of every week. 

Every song has a video but there's also so much more!
