This week our readers worked on changing their voice to match their characters’ feelings. We noticed a lot of little clues in the text that help us know when and how to change our voice like: ellipses, bold print, italics, CAPITAL LETTERS, quotation marks, and more. The kids had so much fun looking for these clues in their own books!
We also learned to hold on to the lessons in our stories. In our fiction books, our characters are always facing some sort of trouble and have to figure out ways to solve these big and small problems. We can learn from our characters, and can even act the same way they do, when the same kind of trouble happens to us!
