How Writers Use Synonyms for Tone and Mood

Recognizing TONE and MOOD when reading is an essential skill needed to fully understand any narrative. You should always try to picture the meaning of the words. This video uses synonyms, idioms and expressions to show HAPPY, SAD and ANGRY. Suitable for fourth-grade and older students.

The video explains briefly how there are many synonyms that can relate to the mood of  a passage. While tone is more of the way the author presents a character. For example lets say that Aria is Sad because her cat died. The author describes her as depressed, stressed, gloomy. While the reader can get mood out of the character by feeling lonely.

I was also working on my project. Which is coming out okay. The informational book is still in process. But I hope that everything comes out good in it. I will also add similes, even though it is non-fiction.
