3. Student sign-up

Students can use Flocabulary independent of their teacher. Use student accounts to assign homework, in-class activities, and more.

Have students sign up using the unique class code generated when you created a class. Students can go to www.flocabulary.com and click “Join a Class.” They will then  enter the class code generated when you created the class followed by selecting “I’m new to Flocabulary” or “I already have an account.” Create a username and password if needed, and they’re in! See the Student Quick Start Guide for more information about student sign-up.
