Product Description
Welcome to Classroom Inspirations. Please visit my blog at ClassroomInspirations.com for unique classroom décor, inspiring lesson plans & more.

Students often struggle to include transition words in their writing. In this lesson, students will learn that transition words help writers “bridge” the gap between ideas. Students will practice using transitions by using “bridges” to help them understand their purpose in the story of The Three Billy Goats Gruff.

Two worksheets are included for additional practice as well as a student reference sheet. Once students get the hang of using transition words, they can try writing about a machine they would like to create. A graphic organizer is included to help students plan their machines. Of course, transition words will have to be used to describe how their contraptions work!
