Product Description
Sometimes, topic sentences need some help to establish a smooth flow. My Thesis Statement/Topic Sentence Handout gives students options for writing these Topic Sentences that provide that natural flow, but sometimes, it just doesn't work out that way. When transitions are needed, they have different purposes, for it all depends on the purpose of the writing. This handout has transition options, separated by purpose and main idea (first, middle, ending), to help ensure students are choosing effective transitions, when they need to use them.

When I color code my writing handouts for my students, this is YELLOW, for it's making them slow down and pay attention to their Topic Sentences to make sure they are effectively tying the ideas together.
