This lesson(s) comes complete with multiple activities to teach students about transition words. After the teacher defines transition words, the lesson grabs the students with a joke about Kermit the Frog in which students may pick out these words in the joke. Next, the teacher models a passage before and after the use of transition words. Students are asked to work with the teacher to improve three short written passages. After that, students complete a dictionary race to introduce four vocabulary words from a story about Paul Revere's Ride from the horse's point of view (can be printed). The final assignment is for students to write a story from an animals pov. The lesson also includes a suggested link to a free online game for further practice.
