Tuning My Writing Voice
Voice is the personality that emerges from a piece of writing. It might be a dorky sense of humor like, in the book series Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Junie B Jones, or it might be sincere and heartfelt like in the Newbery Award Winner Bud, Not Buddy. Help your writers develop a voice with this worksheet. Challenge them to think about ways to express themselves with language, phrases, idioms, similes, and word choices.
This worksheet supports the lesson plan Aiming for Your Audience.
