Writing with Sound: Interjections, Exclamations and Onomatopoeia Words

When you read a piece of writing aloud, it should sound like the author is speaking directly to you.

One of the ways you can help students do that (i.e. find their writing voices) is to have them add words, phrases, and short sentences that they use in their everyday lives to express emotion.

Another way is to have them use sound effects to add interest to settings or to help their readers think about how a particular sound might alter an event.

This resource will help students become comfortable adding sound to their writings by requiring them to use interjections (e.g. Uh-oh! & Wow!), exclamations (e.g. Wake up! & Back off!), and onomatopoeia words (e.g. Splash! & Crash!).

Why You'll Love It!

Students will…

…use whole-class and small-group prewriting strategies to collect sentences that focus on adding auditory descriptions to writings.

…discover how sound effects and exclamations can be used to convey the intensity of characters’ emotions or add interest to story settings.

…conduct peer-reviews to analyze and discuss author’s craft techniques.
