This graphic organizer is a helpful visual to encourage students to use transition/temporal words in writing or retelling. Two versions are available, both in color or black & white. Version One has the following words as a guide: first, next, then, last. Version Two has the words removed for students to use their own transition words or to draw pictures. Both versions can be used as a guide for pre-writing, a writing center, a 'cut, sort, and paste' activity, a retelling assessment, and many more! The color versions are beneficial for students needing an extra visual to enhance their learning. Colors were intentionally chosen to blend from green to red to signal the start and end of writing or retelling. This is especially helpful for English learners, as well as all students.
