4 Write a Parody of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame"

A parody or musical parody is when you change the lyrics to something funny using the same melody of a song.

For example, you could sing "I hope we have ice cream for din-ner" to the tune of the first line of "Take Me Out To The Ballgame"

Or you could try: " I want to go to the beach, soon" ; "I don't like to do home-work"

Continue writing your parody until you have a full verse.

The notation video for this song will help with the rhythms.

Does it rhyme properly?

Perform your parody for your family or friends!

7 Review last week's module, or any of the songs you like!

Repetition is one of the ways that we learn something well.

Children improve singing on pitch, learn the lyrics and melody better with each repetition.

Children will develop their musicality if you sing, move, play more often!

Keep a list of the songs and activities that you like.

You can easily find any song by using the search engine on the website.
