Look What Flocabulary Has For All Of Us! A FREE 90-Day Trial!

One of my favorite online resources is Flocabulary.
As their website states,

Flocabulary is Educational Hip-Hop!  I like to compare it to School House Rock for todays students and teachers.  It is so much fun to learn along with everything Flocabulary has created.

Flocabulary offers more than 500 educational hip-hop videos for grades K-12, plus lessons and activities for every subject includes math, science, social studies, ELA, vocabulary, current events, and now life skills (which features a full series on financial literacy, plus units on social & emotional learning).

Their Common Core Guide can help teachers find what standards they're meeting with the ELA and math content. It can be found at http://www.flocabulary.com/standards/
Right now they have a 90-day free trial available for schools and districts.  This 90-day free trial provides unlimited access for all teachers, staff and students at a school or district!)

Here is the school trial link: http://www.flocabulary.com/trial/school

Here is the district trial link: http://www.flocabulary.com/trial/custom/

Schools and districts can sign up for the trial until February 28, 2015.  

Their trial page for schools and districts will then go back to the standard 30-day trial, so this is a limited-time trial offer!
Flocabulary is creating new content all of the time.  You must check out one of their latest videos for Natural Resources.  

Sign up today and make sure you share this great news with all of your friends.  

I just know your students and school community will love learning, moving, and singing to Flocabulary too!
