What educators are saying

This resource provided an easy, very structured way to talk about tone with my middle school students who have difficulty interpreting tone and other forms of nonverbal communication
LOVE THIS PRODUCT! I haven't found other products like this online, so it was so nice to find this for use with my students. They enjoyed the different situations given.


Do you find it difficult to teach tone of voice? Do you find that the instructions your giving sound vague and too abstract? This interactive PDF provides instructions for tone of voice vocabulary including practice tools, video examples, and quantifiable measures for concrete thinkers. Additionally, the social scenes and scenarios take ONE phrase in THREE difference contexts to solidify how tone of voice changes in different contexts.

Have middle school and high school students in mixed groups with students who need help with inferences, figurative language, and complex sentences? There's an activity on each page for these students as well, making this resource perfect for mixed groups.

What's included in this resource? CHECK OUT the VIDEO PREVIEW for a sneak peek:

  • Instructions for Tone of Voice Vocabulary: Rate, Pitch, Volume, Prolongation
  • Instructions for Oxymorons and Complex Sentences
  • Instructions for Types of Tone of Voice: Sarcastic vs. Sincere, Formal vs. Casual, Respectful vs. Irreverent, and Enthusiastic vs. Matter of Fact
  • 30 Scenarios with REAL Picture Scenes for Analyzation and Expression
