The Styling Librarian

In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian Whatever Wednesday Dec 26th 2012

For today: Advertising Focus: I appreciate my twitter and Facebook friend David Etkin’s  (@davidaetkin ) Whatever Wednesday meme. It is fun to reflect on one thing each week that really catches my attention, entertains me, and is special enough I just have to share it with the world.

Here’s my Whatever Wednesday Randomness:  

I decided to focus on advertisements that made a load of children laugh and also reflect on media and advertising around a month ago. Students discussed how advertisers promote nature loving items they’re selling, babies benefiting from items, and other items making even a mouse strong… I personally think that if children are aware/savvy to media messages through advertisements that parents can follow up on this knowledge with discussions as children need them…

Movies (advertisements) I was inspired by this past week: (Chatted with my son about the message for each of these… I’m quoting what he thinks):

Mousetrap Survivor Cheese Commercial: – message “that brand of cheese makes you super strong, even mice” – I personally adore The Carpenters, so was quite excited to hear the beginning song!

Coca Cola Nature Commercial: – message “very tasty that even nature wants Coca Cola”

Evian Water Advertisement- Roller Skating Babies: – message “that you’ll live young if you drink Evian”

PS- If you haven’t had a conversation with your children (or students) about advertisements/media awareness, there are many venues that I’d recommend. I collected my favorite resources and discussion points for my Year 3 teachers on a Smore page: (I’ve mentioned before how much I appreciate using Smore as a teacher librarian!)

Hope everyone has a wonderful day!

Thank you again to “Eat the Book” for the Whatever Wednesday meme: David Etkin’s words: “Whatever Wednesday — a chance to post something I’ve seen that I’m diggin’. Though often a cool quote or poster, it might simply be a picture.”
