Product Description
Looking to get students up-and-moving and out-of-their-seats? Want to differentiate an activity to provide a proper amount of both support and challenge? Need a formative assessment to follow up on a conjunctive adverbs mini-lesson? Trying to determine if your students understand how and when to use conjunctive adverbs?

I am SO excited to share this activity with you because it was a great success in my own classroom!

Here's what you do:
1. Print off the three pages of enlarged, color-coded sentences (orange, green, and purple) using a color printer.
2. Cut the 24 sentences into strips and randomly hang them around your classroom (on walls, doors, desks, windows, etc.)
3. When class starts, read the directions for the activity out loud while putting one of the blank graphic organizers under your doc cam. I also recommend doing a sample sentence with the class. Read them the sentence and ask how the conjunctive adverb is being used... then write it onto the chart (on the graphic organizer) as a demonstration.
4. Intentionally (but secretly) pass out the appropriate level of graphic organizer to each student-- you could do this in a variety of ways! Remember, the orange sentences will be the easiest to classify, green sentences will be medium in difficulty, and purple will provide the most challenge). Your students will never know that the three colors represent three different levels of difficulty.
5. Circulate around the classroom and listen to the productive conversations as your students discuss how the different conjunctive adverbs are being used. Help out when needed, and then collect the graphic organizers as they finish. Students could roll into silent reading or any other independent work because students will take a range of time to complete the scavenger hunt (most between 20-30 minutes).

P.S. I've been sharing and selling products on TpT since 2013, and every new sale, follower, and rating still makes-my-day! Thank you so much!
