This interactive smartboard lesson begins with a short lesson in transitions and why we use them in our writing. Then it moves into some fun practice slides allowing students to choose the transition that fits the sentence. A variety of activities and many transition words are used in this lesson. Slides are self checking either by clicking to view an answer or by moving a word to an object to see if it disappears. This activity could be used as a teacher directed whole class lesson or in an independent, student directed station. Created with Smart Notebook 11. Great for grades 2 - 5 depending on the level of the student. MUST have SMART Notebook software to download and use this lesson.
