Use Understanding Sarcasm
Sarcasm can be so difficult to understand. I like to teach my students some ways to know when someone is being sarcastic. If the situation isn’t matching what they are saying, there is a good chance they are being sarcastic. This is a great time to work on tone of voice as well. Practice saying different statements in a sarcastic voice or in a sincere voice. Talk about the differences in how their voices sound.
