Product Description
These are six pop tunes from the late 2000's, with about four measures from each song. The purpose is for students to attempt sightreading these and figure out what the song is.

I tried to pick easy songs.

You could have students write in "Do-Re-Mi" ahead of time, or have them do it after a few expert students figure it out, and then sing the line.

Tunes like "Pokerface" and "I've Gotta Feeling" proved much more motivating (but just as valuable) for students to work on for a week and a half than random sightreading sheets. I plan to make more of these in the upcoming weeks. Let me know if these are a hit with your students!

Answer key:
- Line 1 = Pokerface
- Line 2 = Apologize
- Line 3 = Empire State of Mind
- Line 4 = Fire Burning
- Line 5 = Tik-Tok
- Lines 6-7 = I've Gotta Feelin'
