Because - So
We want students to expand and talk as much as they can. We also
want them to be able to express themselves clearly. In order to do that
students need to feel empowered to speak longer, to add extra
information and to share more of their ideas. The use of because and
so is a great little way to get started making longer sentences and
expressing reasons for actions or ideas.
How to use the worksheet.
1. Drill the patterns. Try to drill the examples in three times:
I’m going to _______ because XYZ. XYZ so I’m going to _______.
I _______ because XYZ. XYZ so I _______.
I _______ed because XYZ. XYZ so I _______ed.
2. Use the conversations above.
3. You’ll notice that the conversations do NOT use because or so. It’s
up to you and the students to change them to make them read more
4. Get into a new conversation and make sure to use these patterns
Have a suggestion, request or idea? Notice a typo or want to suggest a change? Write in!
