This is a simple way to teach and reinforce the use of transition words. Students can work independently or with partners to find and highlight the transition words in a short paragraph. Then they must choose 5 from the paragraph to use in their own paragraph. Finally, students will explain how the use of transition words improve writing. This worksheet provides a formative and summative assessment of understanding.
