Help your students with accurate use of persuasive words and specific linking/transition words for specific paragraphs.
The list helps students determine which types of linking/transition words are best suited for the first paragraph, second, third and concluding paragraphs. The list also includes the most commonly used persuasive words to include throughout their writing, such as "the truth is, the best, recommend, should, and it's a fact just to name a few! No more guessing!
The reference sheet can support students while writing persuasive pieces, specifically when grouping like ideas, and developing a way to present the ideas from beginning to end (format and organization of written presentation). Use these transitional words to show order of events and write with complex sentences to link the parts of their writing together.
Example list for first paragraph: first, to begin with, the first reason
Example list for second paragraph: additionally, another reason, in addition
Example list for third paragraph: the most important reason, most importantly, third
Perfect for student writing offices or as a reference for a whole class. Each page has 2 sheets for economy printing! :)
Large print included to make a 24 x 11 size poster.
