´╗┐Teacher Winnie stands in front of a smart board.

Teacher Winnie is in her twenties, with straight brown hair in a half do. She wears glasses and a blue Homework Zone T-shirt.

She says HI, I'M TEACHER
WINNIE, AND TODAY,
WE'RE GOING TO BE
LOOKING AT
TONE AND VOICE
WHEN WE READ SENTENCES.
SO LET'S GO TO THE
SMART BOARD
FOR
SOME EXAMPLES.
NOW, THERE ARE
DIFFERENT
TYPES OF
PUNCTUATIONS.
FOR EXAMPLE, THE
FIRST ONE,
"A PERIOD
MAKES A STATEMENT."
WHEN WE READ SENTENCES
WITH PERIODS,
OUR VOICE KIND
OF STAYS THE SAME.
SO FOR
EXAMPLE:

The sentence reads "The bees work all day to build their hives."

Winnie says STEADY, ONE
SENTENCE,
THERE'S NO
KIND OF FLUCTUATION
WITH OUR
VOICE.
BUT WHEN
WE CHANGE THE
PUNCTUATION AT
THE END,
TO A QUESTION
MARK, WE WANT TO
MAKE SURE OUR VOICE
GOES UP SLIGHTLY.
SO NOW WE CHANGE
THE SENTENCE TO SAY:

The sentence reads "Do bees work all day to build their hives?"

Winnie says SO NOTICE,
WHEN WE GET NEAR
OR CLOSER
TO THE END
OF THE SENTENCE,
WE WANT TO BRING OUR
TONE OF VOICE
A LITTLE
HIGHER, AND THAT'S
WHAT A QUESTION MARK
DOES TO A SENTENCE.
AND FINALLY,
AN EXCLAMATION MARK
SHOWS A STRONG
FEELING.
SO THE
SENTENCE I HAVE IS:

The sentence reads "Bees work all day to build their hives!"

Winnie says AND WE WANT TO MAKE
SURE WE WANT
TO STRESS THAT IT
TAKES A LOT OF WORK.
SO WE WANT TO SAY
BEES WORK ALL DAY
TO BUILD
THEIR HIVES!
AND THAT SHOWS A
STRONGER FEELING,
AND WHEN WE
READ IT,
WE WANT TO SHOW
A STRONGER VOICE.
SO THAT'S THREE
WAYS TO READ,
AS A READER,
DEPENDING ON THE
PUNCTUATION
YOU SEE.
I'M TEACHER WINNIE,
AND THAT'S TONE AND VOICE.
