Is Your New Year's Resolution to Eat Healthier? Let the Second Graders Help!!

The 2nd graders are learning about persuasive writing.  What better way to learn what that means then by writing their own persuasive commercials!!  

Students named their cereal and designed their cereal boxes on the computers, then with their partner they wrote their scripts, practiced and performed their commercials for you!  They are so impressive and they did it all themselves!  Wow!!

I guarantee you will be persuaded!
