Fun with Writing!

So this morning, my daughter confessed that while she was supposed to be brushing her teeth and getting started with her school work, she was instead... pretending to do a lotion commercial!  Of course I HAD to hear this commercial and it was adorable - I couldn't believe how professional it sounded considering we don't have cable tv and watch VERY little television in general.  She compared products and stated the problem and how to solve the problem all in about 30 seconds - yes, we have an advertising exec in training.

I suggested doing a video recording for fun.  I had her practice her "schpeel" a few times and realized that this could be a perfect lesson in quality adjectives and strong verbs.  In the first clip you'll see her "plain" commercial.  The second clip is her dressed up version. 

So fun!  I hope this inspires you to try some creative writing assignments - be sure to leave a comment with a link to your commercials for us to enjoy!


  1. Emma is taking a writing class and learning all about quality adjectives and strong verbs! Tell Faith she did a great job! She is still as adorable as the day you moved away!!!!
