This packet is designed to help your student practice identifying and using the appropriate intonation to convey different emotions. The following emotions are targeted: happy, excited, sad, angry, bored, scared, surprised, proud.
Activity #1: Students choose one of the sentence cards located on pages 4-7 as well as an emotion card from page 3. Then, your students repeat or read the sentence using the chosen emotion. You may also discuss whether it would be appropriate to use the chosen emotion for that specific sentence. There are 8 emotions cards and 48 sentence cards. You can use one of the worksheets on pages 8-10, and have your students cover one of the dots after they practice each emotion.
Activity #2: Students read a hypothetical scenario that includes a brief dialogue. Students then identify how the speaker would feel and repeat a sentence using the same tone of voice. There are 3 visual answer choices on each card. 32 cards total.
Activity #3: Students use visual organizers to describe the tone of voice for each emotion using the parameters of rate and volume.
Activity #4: Students compare the tones of voice for two different emotions using the parameters of rate and volume. For example, “Does your voice sound louder when you are angry or bored?” 16 cards total.
Activity #5: Students think of something they could say to convey a specific emotion that would be appropriate in a certain location at school. For example, “What could you say in the gym using an excited voice?” 24 cards total.
