Get students writing with this fun activity creating their own Personal Advertisement! Students follow the guidelines to plan and write a personal ad - about themselves! Students are instructed to persuade the audience to answer their ad finding a "best friend" and are given prompts with which to organize their writing. In their writing, they are trying to convince their audience to "choose" them for their new best friend, and are encouraged to write down all the important things a friend should do or what they should be like. Finally, students are given a blank page to include a photo or drawing of themselves and their ad copy.
This is a great addition to a unit on Sarah, Plain and Tall, as Sarah answers a personal advertisement that Papa placed!
