What You Do:

  1. Have your child write a short commercial about an exciting place he has visited. Places can include vacation spots, day trips, or local outings. Help him edit the commercial and set the mood to show excitement.
  2. Ask your child to write another commercial. This time have him write about a food that he loves to eat. Encourage him to use words that will convey a feeling of happiness.
  3. For the final commercial, have your child write about the effects of smoking, cancer and lung disease. Ask him to use words that when read aloud will make the listener feel angry and sad.
  4. Now it’s time for your child to play the part of the actor and practice reading each commercial. Encourage him to read fluently and with expression conveying the mood of each short commercial.
  5. Lights! Camera! Action! Now it’s time to gather an audience. Grab a seat. Your child, acting as the commercial spokesperson, is ready to read!
