GOOGLE CLASSROOM USERS: This themed product helps us to engage learners who, at this time of year, are easily distracted by the spooky thrills of Halloween. As a result, it has become a fantastic time to teach tone and mood!
Teacher/Student Google Slides: Within this product you will find a progressive approach to get students first into developing their understanding of tone and mood, moving into a comparison of texts focusing on the keywords to help determine tone and mood, into then being a writer and practicing manipulating the reader themselves! The teacher slides offer notes on how we effectively used each slide while the student copy has the same slides but do not have the guidance described for the teachers.
Answer Key: Some answers are debatable and we push our students to do just that! Lots of deep thinking opportunities are provided but our answer key creates guidelines to help lead deep student discussion.
Digital Breakout Room: This can be used as a fun way to have students self-check their understanding while also giving the teacher a quick, informal assessment tool without the hassle of grading!
Tone and Mood Word Sort: This is a helpful and tangible tool to both push students’ vocabulary development as well as offer a quick check for teachers to assess their initial understanding of the skill.
Tone and Mood Digital Word Sort/Answer Key: This offers more guidance for students to self-check by providing a link to the definition of each word prior to them finishing the sort. Use this in small group, partner work, or whole group.
