Epic First Lines Bulletin Board
You know those songs that immediately make you stop and sing along from the first line? The songs that everyone knows? This bulletin board celebrates those songs!
Included in this download are 24 posters with the first lines of some famous songs. (The display shows a partial kit.) The posters have the first lines, the song title and the artist. The artist and song title are on the tickets at the bottom so you can create an interactive display out of them. Print as many of the blank tickets as you’ll need and them put the on the posters to cover the answers with a single piece of tape. Students and staff members can peek at the answers to see if they are right.
Also included in this download are large title letters that say “Epic First Lines” and smaller words that read “Can you name the title and artist?” If you are planning to use one or two of the posters at a time or need to display them in a smaller area, two title sheets are included with the same words. Check your printer’s settings for ways to print this set smaller for a smaller display area.
