Hip-hop songs, rap lyrics, and SAT vocabulary words. Seems like something does not belong, but on the website Flocabulary you can find all of the above! There are some free clips to watch or listen to that are quite humorous and memorable; however, most services are fee-based. If you have students who have a hard time memorizing and hate to study, this site is a good example of how to make studying fun. Flocabulary also has songs for U.S. History and Shakespeare.

One way to integrate this technology into your classroom for free is by having your students create their own Flocabulary inspired clips with MovieMaker or Photostory. Students can write lyrics with the helpful hints of how to rhyme and rap on the site. Then use Audacity to record the sound and upload into a multimedia presentation tool. Having students create their own memory aids would be beneficial to their overall learning and save some money too!
