I would imagine that, just like Superman, I would fly to the rescue.
Discussion: How does the 3rd sentence support the 2nd?
Voice is the author's style - sentences with voice convey the author's personality, attitude or character
- Turn and share with a partner!
What is Voice?
Example:
If I were a super hero, my superpower would be flying.
I've always been amazed with superheros who could fly such as Superman.

I would imagine that, just like Superman, I would fly to the rescue.
In addition, flying would be an amazing super power because it's practical; I would never have to pay to travel again!
Discussion: How can you tell that the last sentence has voice?
Time to Write with POWER!
Directions:
