Using the sentence bubbles to understand transitional words is less overwhelming for students who are learning to write paragraphs. The students will write the topic in the middle box and then fill in the bubbles. This works great with grades 1-3. Higher level students can use the bubble to write in more than one sentence whereas the younger students can work in a beginner level of writing. Transfer the finished product onto a separate paper, in paragraph form and admire the work that has been completed!
