Transition words do not come naturally to our students unless we provide them with ideas on how to incorporate them into their writing. Use this freebie to help your kiddos when they are writing to compare and contrast. I used it for my ESL kids to help them prepare for the TELPAS. I gave them two images to compare and contrast.
