First Grade Enrichment Reading: Commercials

As the culminating event for our advertising unit in first grade reading, the students created their own commercials.  Each group came up with a concept, picked one or more advertising techniques, created a story board, and then rehearsed, filmed, and edited their commercials.

Today, I am proud to present their finished products.  I know, way to work until the last minute!  We’ve been frantically editing up until now when I am typing this post.  (No, I wasn’t still editing commercials at 11 o’clock last night.  That would be crazy!)

The commercials are on YouTube, but they are unlisted.  This means you can get to them if you follow the links, but they don’t appear in a Google search.   There is no way to get to the commercials unless you have the direct link.  And without further ado, here they are:

Natalie, Megan, Kate, & Sasha’s Clean Water Commercial

Amos, Cleo, Lucas, & Simon’s String Cheese Commercial

Lucas & Nathan’s Banana Commercial

Jane, Alex, Phineas, & Jack’s Apple Commercial

Hana & Rylan’s Reading Commercial

Sophie & Sylvie’s Green Bean Commercial

Daniel, Owen, & Jahnavi’s Blueberries Commercial

Gabriel, Julian, Lucas, & Kayan’s Basketball Commercial

Henry & Miles’s Watermelon Commercial

Kenton & Cam’s Frisbee Commercial

Zach & Aiden’s Water Commercial


I’m so proud of the work these kids did.  I don’t know about you, but I think the commercials look pretty darn professional.  Go first grade readers!

Thank you so much for sharing your children with me this year!  Have a wonderful summer!
