This week the homework will center on advertising activities. The activities are appropriate for K-3, except as noted. Feel free to copy, cut, and paste the assignments into your own word processor for sending home (or print this page).

Day 1

Have the children search through magazines, newspapers, brochures, ads, etc. for pictures of company logos. Cut them out, glue on a piece of paper and write (dictate) the name of the companies by the logos. Bring them in for a bulletin board display.

Day 2

Ask the children to make a list of famous people and the companies for which they are spokespeople. If they are able to locate the person's pictures and the ads for the companies, bring those to school, too.

Day 3

Have the children either write (dictate) or cut out slogans or jingles for as many companies as they can find. For example, McDonalds might be, "Lovin' It" or Nike, "Just do it," or my favorite, "Choosey mothers choose Jif."

Day 4

Name three things you think other people should buy. Write or dictate as many reasons as you can think of why someone should buy those items (products). If possible, think of a jingle or saying for your product that will stick in someone's mind.
