Fluency: Intonation When good readers read nonfiction aloud, their voice expresses the feeling of the passage. They change the pitch or intonation of their voice, making it go high and low when reading words and phrases that need emphasis. They also use end marks as clues for reading particular words and sentences. When you read nonfiction try to make your voice go up and down, depending on: how important words are end marks and other punctuation Open your book to page 388 and listen as I read. I notice that the first sentence is about fifty thousand acorns. That’s a lot from one tree, so I will emphasize the words fifty thousand by raising my voice slightly. Turn to your partner and practice reading using intonation on page 388.
