* 3 different levels of Spanish transition words with a sample sentence for each one to help students understand how to use transitions effectively

Beginner examples: también, de vez en cuando, mañana, porque, pronto, sin embargo, además, a veces, luego, por último, etc.

Intermediate examples: al principio, de repente, por eso, en ese momento, no obstante, gracias a, érase una vez, así que, en vez de, por lo menos, etc.

Advanced examples include: en aquel entonces, por una parte, por otra parte, a diferencia de, puesto que, dado que, sin duda, me parece claro que, a semejanza de, con tal de que, por consiguiente, etc.

Usage Ideas:

* Ask students to incorporate certain Spanish transition words in their writing.

* Pick an expression of the week and have students use it as much as possible when speaking and writing.

* Laminate a set as a class reference.

* Give extra credit for using the Spanish transition word of the week in class.

* "My kids kept saying, "Why didn't we have this sooner!?"

* "Excellent resource. I can use this with all 3 different levels that I teach and we can keep track of them as they move up each year. Thank you so much for your hard work! My students loved it and said: This is gold! I need to keep this for years to come! :)"

* "I LOVE this packet for helping intermediate students bridge the gap between short, choppy sentences and more complex writing."
