Is It Any Good?

Many of the hip-hop songs on this educational app are serious earworms, quickly sticking inside kids' brains. This is good news, because there's a lot to learn in Flocabulary: Educational Hip-Hop for K-12. Each subject gets a catchy rhythm and rhyme embedded into a memorable video. Some examples of subjects covered in the videos include the classification of the life system, multiplication tables, prefixes, and social skills. Limiting videos by grade level ensures that the material will be understandable and age-appropriate. Adding a search option to the app so kids or parents can search for a video by keyword would be useful. It's likely worth the $4.99/month subscription price, especially if your kid loves music and needs help remembering what's being taught in school or if your kid needs fun life-skills learning.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
