This product is a zip folder containing a 9 slide PowerPoint presentation, a 5 page printable packet, and 4 creative writing task cards.
The PowerPoint contains 9 slides which follow the printables.
The printable teach the definition of tone, gives an example of determining tone in a text excerpt, and then gives 4 additional text excerpts for students to practice. the last three pages are for activities that correspond with the task cards for students to create their own tone.
The task cards have character traits and characters
. Also, they also are setting description and setting lists. Each sheet should be printed and laminated. Make one set for each student. The students would then place their finger on the task card, shut their eyes, and squiggle their finger around until I said "Stop". Whatever word they landed on, that would be used on the worksheet for their creative writing piece.
For example, if they chose "creative" for character trait, "ice cream man" for character, "joyful" for setting description and "hotel room" for setting they have a "creative ice cream man who lives in a joyful hotel room."
This is about one class period in the middle school, but you could take additional time with the creative writing pieces at the end. I hope you love this product.
