Tone of Voice (PDF) Ages 4-10


 Have you ever heard the phrase, it's not what you say, it's how you say it?

You see, kids don't always understand how their tone of voice can change the meaning of what they are saying.

We can help kids learn to recognize their tone of voice when communicating; this will help them be mindful of how they are saying what they are saying.

Just look at the phrase, "What's for dinner."  Think of all the different meanings this sentence could have based on what words you emphasize and the tone you use.

Oh, and what's great about this set is it's totally fun for kids; they often get right into practicing the tones. (Quite dramatically!)

This helpful set includes printable practice cards, tone of voice feeling cheat sheets, and scenario cards.

For charts and cards I recommend printing on thick stock paper, so it's easier to hang, not as flimsy, and can handle some wear ‘n’ tear.

For worksheets, activities and guides, I recommend printing and keeping securely in a three ring binder. Easy Peasy.

If you've purchased a handy chart or set of cards, this isn't necessary, but boy oh boy, it sure skyrockets things to the next level of fun. Do you have a laminator? (If you don't have one, I like this one). Laminate your resources (amazing). We all know kids are hard on things, so now you won't have to keep printing your chart and cards every time they get a little beat up.

Many of our charts also use Velcro stickers. And this is the icing on the cake. Attach one side of the Velcro sticker to the task card, and one side to the chart. Ensure that you don't mix up the sides. (i.e., the "hook" side should be on the chart, and the "furry" side on the cards.) Now you can move the cards around at your leisure. (Plus it's SUPER fun for kids).
