Being able to use transition words and phrases is one of the keys to growing as a writer. Smoothly linking thoughts, ideas, and events can be difficult for young writers if they don’t have examples. These transition word resources give kids ideas for incorporating new and eloquent ways to connect their thoughts. And because different writing situations call for different transitions, the word lists are separated into the three parts of a narrative: BEGINNING, MIDDLE, and END. Additionally, because there are there two types of narratives, real (personal narratives) and imagined (creative narratives) writers need to be able use transitions that are best suited for each type of narrative. I hope this resource helps you and your students as they practice and perfect their writing skills!
