PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This one-page, printable PDF chart of tone and mood words is designed with middle-schoolers or those who have just been introduced to this concept in mind.

The internet is filled with free, comprehensive, lengthy lists of tone and mood words. When I looked at all of those detailed lists, I knew my middle-schoolers ... who range from remedial sixth-graders to high-ability eighth-graders ... wouldn't begin to understand most of the words on those lists! They're overwhelming!

This one-page printable is my answer. It gives a basic definition of both tone and mood, and then displays a chart of words that are commonly used to describe both tone and mood in positive, neutral, and negative ways. In addition to basic tone/mood words, the chart lists synonyms that further develop the meaning of the original word or provide a kid-friendly alternative.

Included in this PDF file are two versions of this black-and-white printable:

Version #1 is a one-page landscape-style chart that can easily be printed on one side of an 8.5 x 11 paper. This is a great size for copying onto the back of something else, for placing at a center, or for giving to students to keep in a binder or folder.

Version #2 contains two half-sized copies of the chart on one page. This size is designed to be cut in half and taped or glued into a notebook or composition book for easy reference.

This helpful reference has made a world of difference for my students because it keeps it simple and puts descriptors in language they can understand.
