Flocabulary Logo

Congratulations to sixth-grader Abby Heintz for winning the “Week in Rap Shout-Out Contest”  from Flocabulary, an online education tool that helps students build vocabulary and master 21st-century skills. Abby wrote a rap in social studies teacher Dave Aronberg’s class for extra credit. The prompt was “If you could create a law, what would it be?” Students were asked to submit a rhyming rap of at least 8 lines. Abby’s winning submission is below:


I am Abby from Ladue middle school.

listen to me or you are a fool.
the law I want to make is about our trees.

this law I want to make should be followed with ease.

don’t cut the trees down,
and our animals won’t frown.
our forests should be saved,
our forests shouldn’t be paved.
From Abby Heintz

Abby’s rap will receive a “shout out” on Flocabulary’s website on Friday, Jan. 11, 2019. Congratulations, Abby!
