Once students have developed the skill of writing in complete sentences, it's time to help them link their ideas together. I developed this 45-minute lesson to help my students learn how to successfully link ideas and information through transitions. It can be used by itself, or incorporated with any writing genre (informative, opinion, narrative) you might already be doing with students.
Included in this product:
* a detailed 2-page lesson outline (page one is included in the preview)
* a three-dimensional graphic organizer that can be used separately or glued into an interactive notebook (2 sizes - one fits inside a composition notebook; the other inside a spiral-bound notebook)
* printables for additional practice at using transitions in 3 genres - informative, opinion and narrative
* 11 Teaching Slides to guide your students through the lesson
There are also scripted “think alouds” and answer keys included so you can concentrate on what you do best – teaching!
You will receive a .zip file containing everything – the Teaching Slides are a separate file since they are used directly with students. I recommend you either display the Teaching Slides via a white board or document camera. Please ensure you unzip/extract all items to use them.
