People can experience lots of different emotions; anger, sadness, happiness. These emotions are expressed through actions, the faces people make, or through body language. Authors try to do the same thing when they write. They give their characters and stories personalities. Each author’s unique style of writing is called voice. In this experience, you will learn how authors choose their words to develop their voice.
Look at the picture. What do you think the woman is saying? Use your imagination.
I am not a morning person, but today I popped out of bed. “Happy birthday to me!” I thought as I put on my neon pink, sequined birthday crown, sparkly dress, and boots. BAM! I was ready for the day!
I floated downstairs. I saw in the middle of the table a box with a giant bow. I thought, “It’s too small for a pony.” My mom was baking my cinnamon swirl pancakes.
“Go ahead and open it!” mom smirked. “I know you can barely stand it!”
I tore into the paper, ripped open the box. What was this? Was she kidding? A plastic pony? I turned to look at mom. Her back was turned from me but I could tell she was giggling.AAAAHHHHHH!
