Today’s activity – Choose a book/comic/newspaper to read for 20minutes. We have been working on expression.

When reading full stops tells you to take a breath and pause.

A comma (,) tells you to take a smaller pause.

An exclamation mark (!) tells you to use a louder voice (can you work out the reason the author wants you to use a louder voice?)

Invert commas (speech marks “ .”)  Tells us a character is talking and you need to change you voice to sound like the character.

Can you practice all the above and read your book with expression?  Once you have practiced reading with expression can you read your book aloud to an audience.
