Ms. Bachhuber's Bulletin

May 6th, 2016

Your child was the star of a commercial!

In writing this week, we published our ad/flyers about the invention your child created. Then, we had the fun opportunity to create a script for a commercial about the invention to try and get people to buy it! Your child created a Movenote presentation that was their commercial for the invention. We had so much fun completing this project!

Ask your child... to show you his/her commercial and invention flyer/ad!
