The students are going to watch a movie during their annual Christmas party, and the principal needs to know which version of the story is most appropriate for Kindergarten and First Grade students. She has asked you to view and analyze a couple clips from "A Christmas Carol" starring Jim Carey and "A Christmas Carol" staring the Muppets in order to make recommendations for the elementary school reward day. Her main concerns are the tone and mood of the films...
Is the tone and mood acceptable for young viewers?
Does your recommended version closely mirror the plot of the original written work?

Each group will be given a number to complete. When each group has finished, we will share the answers that each group found. Each group will teach us about their example and the answer that they chose. You will be responsible for copying down each group’s work so by the end, your paper is complete!

Look at the list of words and decide if each word has a positive (+), negative (-) or neutral (=) feelings.

Independently (5)- Write down 5 words that describe the mood of the clip. Think about the camera angles, lighting, sound/music
Small group (3)- Each person needs to share their list with the group. As a group, decide on the three best words that describe the mood.
Share (1)- Pick one word that best represents the mood of the clip. Put that word on your sticky note!

The setting, use of descriptive words, the punctuation used, and the sound of words all work to create the mood of a story.

How Does a Writer Create Mood?

Mood is the feeling that a story creates in the reader.

Tone is a author’s attitude toward the subject or audience of the story.

Mood & Tone


Mood and tone are important because they help the reader to determine the author’s purpose and the overall theme or main idea of the story.

Why are Mood and Tone Important?

While mood is the feeling that a story creates in a reader, tone is the writer’s attitude toward the subject or audience of the story.
Look for clues in the language the writer uses to identify how the writer feels about the subject.

What is the tone?







The Crocodile
How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the water of the Nile
On every golden scale!

How cheerfully he seems to grin!
How neatly spreads his claws,
And welcomes little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!
