UPDATE: First Grade Enrichment Reading: Commercials WITH CORRECTED LINKS

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, and I tried to share them as unlisted but it did not work!  So for now they are public, and if the link to your child’s commercial doesn’t work, you should be able to copy and paste the commercial name into the Google search box and the commercial will come up.  Apologies for the technical difficulties!

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!
