Product Description
This is designed as a cross-curricular activity that could be implemented easily by a music teacher OR an English teacher. I’ve supplied you with an example that was actually created in my music classroom by sixth grade students. There are four different songs of varying length and complexity provided, giving the opportunity to differentiate the difficulty level for your students. Feel free to make adjustments as needed to fit your teaching styles and your students’ needs. If you have any questions, please leave a Q&A or send me an e-mail!

Songs used are:
"Home on the Range" (Also used as the example)
"Row, Row, Row Your Boat" (Easy)
"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" (Moderate)
"The Man on the Flying Trapeze" (More Challenging)

Materials Needed:
 Highlighters for all students (in a few different colors)
 Pencils for all students (don’t use pen, you’ll want to erase!)
 Musical Instrument OR Recording of the music for each tune
 Copies of the handouts for each student
 Rhyming Dictionaries OR Access to online rhyming dictionaries
 Access to recordings of existing parodies and their original songs
 Optional: Books of parodies and piggyback songs.

Please check out the preview to see the example and what the worksheets look like. All songs have the exact same instructions and layout. You can have your students complete multiple songs, or can give students specific songs based on their abilities in order to differentiate.
