How do good readers read aloud with intonation? Good readers vary the pitch of their voice when reading aloud (so they don't sound like robots)!
What is the definition of compare? Compare means to find ways that two or more things are similar.
What is the definition of contrast? Contrast means to find ways that two or more things are different.
How can we infer when reading? We can infer when reading by understanding information that is not written directly in the text.
Why do authors use idioms when writing? Authors use idioms (phrases whose meanings are different from the meanings of the actual words) when writing to make the text more realistic and lively.
Is the following phrase an example of an idiom? "it rained cats and dogs" Yes. Cats and dogs were not raining from the sky. The phrase means that it was raining heavily.
