Teach your reading class how to use tone and voice with this fun activity using emojis! Tone is something that your students can understand when they hear in your voice. They do not always understand in the books they read.
I have created 14 emoji cards with common character feelings that range from sad, depressed, joy, and delighted to name a few. The teacher can print the cards and cut them out. Have students pick from one of the 20 Tone scenario cards to act out a scene using the tone emoji cards.
This activity can be used in partners, small group, or a whole class. Have fun identifying the tone and students will learn this challenging skill.
In the activity there is also an anchor chart, which can be used to show the kids about tone and common ways it is used.
I hope you enjoy this activity. If you have any questions or comments, please contact me.
