Tunes Tuesday - Firework

I am linking up with Nick at Sweet Rhyme - Pure Reason for his Tunes Tuesday linky.

To quote Nick - "What is Tunes Tuesday? (My new readers may be asking!) It's simple! Just choose a grammar skill and pair it with a popular (or classic!) song (with clean lyrics!) that has examples of that skill in the lyrics. Copy and paste the lyrics into a document, and ask the kiddos to highlight the examples throughout the lyric sheet. I like to play the music video (clean version obvs!) for the kids while they work. It takes just a few minutes, but the kids beg for it every week! Music + boring grammar skill + highlighters = Fun grammar lesson! Click my tag, "Tunes Tuesday" to find past posts about this that have a few freebies to reference and use!"

My contribution is Katy Perry's Firework. I did options for both similes and pronouns. Click on the sheet to get the download.
If I were you, I would NOT show the original video. But I found her singing on Oprah with a kids' chorus. {Here} is the link.

And I chose my pin it to win it winner! Check your email!


  1. Hey Twin, I linked up with the same song! Too funny! Great minds think alike! Have a wonderful week, take care!

  2. Thank you so much for linking up! I love your lyric sheet and song! I pretty much always go for the alternate video when it comes to Katy Perry...haha!

    I'm surprised no one went for that one she sang with Elmo that was pulled off the air. Have you seen it?

  3. I used this song last year with my kids and they would sing-scream this one...not a great thing when you're in a pod setting and the 2nd graders are hanging around the corner to see WHAT the big kids are doing that is so FUN!! So of course...I opened the wall and let them join us!

  4. Love it!! I teach 4th grade, and I start each year by teaching them 8 writing devices, simile and metaphor being a couple of them. Super idea using this song to illustrate that. They LOVE Katy Perry. Will def. do this lesson in the fall. Thanks!

  5. Love, love, love this idea! Thanks! And thank you for providing the google doc too! Lattes and Laughter

  6. Do you have any other songs you use? Obviously, finding kid friendly and appealing songs is not easy! lol!
