These activities can be used to help your students hear voice in what they are reading, as well as generate their own voice they can use in their writing throughout the school year. Use these assignments after you have introduced the concept of voice in the Six plus One Traits and before you ask them to use this skill in their own writing. Most activities can easily be posted on a Smart Board and worked on as a class or even made into overhead transparencies, instead of making copies for each student.
A final writing project is included that teachers can use to focus on hearing voice in what they read, as well as the students can develop their own voice or the voice of characters they create throughout the school year.
