Product Description
Transitional words and phrases can create powerful links between ideas in your paper and can help your reader understand the logic of your paper. Learning to fine tune this skill will give you the advantage when writing a creative piece.

I've been teaching writing for a number of years. It never fails to frustrate me to open a book with a long list of transitional words to be used by an inexperience writer. How do they expect students to comprehend and utilize this concept if they don't start with a digestible list?

This mini lesson shows transition word categories such as:
Show Location
Show Time
Add information
Compare/Contrast
Conclude or Summarize
Show Importance

Each category has no more than nine words each so that students can easily incorporate the lists into a comprehensible paragraph.

There is an opening paragraph that students observe good concise use of transitional words. Then there are two paragraphs that require the student to underline the transitional words or phrases. An answer key is included.

Finally students complete a paragraph utilizing transition words that were used in the lists and examples.
