    Here are a couple cute songs I've used for teaching r-controlled vowels:

    Bossy "R" Song(tune: London Bridge)
    Bossy "r" changes the vowel
    changes the vowel, changes the vowel
    Bossy "r" changes the vowel, Bossy "r" sound.

    When an "r" comes after an "a",
    after an "a", after an "a"
    When an "r" comes after an "a",
    It says "ar".
    Car and harp and chart and hard,
    chart and hard, chart and hard,
    When an "r" comes after an "a",
    It says "ar".

    When an "r" comes after an "e", after an "i", or after an "u"
    When an "r" comes after these three
    It says "er".
    Her and germ and bird and nurse,
    bird and nurse, bird and nurse,
    When an "r" comes after these three,
    It says "er".

    When an "r" comes after an "o",
    after an "o", after an "o"
    When an "r" comes after an "o",
    It says "or".
    Horse and fork and short and corn,
    short and corn, short and corn,
    When an "r" comes after an "o",
    It says "or".

    Bossy "r" changes the vowel
    changes the vowel, changes the vowel
    Bossy "r" changes the vowel,
    Bossy "r" sound.

    Another Bossy R Song
    Tune: He's Got the Whole World in His Hands

    Refrain:Oh, the bossy-bossy r
    Always gets his way.
    Yes, the bossy-bossy r
    Always has his say.
    And you can wish upon a star,
    But you won't get far
    If you ignore the bossy r.

    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In burn and turn.
    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In sir and her.
    And you can set up quite a stir,
    But you won't get far
    If you ignore the bossy r.


    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In barn,and yarn.
    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In harm and farm.
    And you can sound out the alarm,
    But you won't get far
    If you ignore the bossy r.


    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In cork and fork.
    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In corn and born.
    And you can set out in the morn,
    But you won't get far
    If you ignore the bossy r.


    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In bear and care.
    You got the bossy-bossy r
    In dare and share.
    And you can go ‘most anywhere,
    But you won't get far
    If you ignore the bossy r.


    Refrain:
    Oh, the bossy-bossy r
    Always gets his way.
    Yes, the bossy-bossy r
    Always has his say.
    And you can wish upon a star,
    But you won't get far
    If you ignore the bossy r.
