Teach your students how to write using transition words with this fun and effective mini-unit. These lessons are especially well suited for reluctant writers as the emphasis is on fun and the students are provided with models/mentor texts to learn from.
Please find included two mentor texts/writing models, lesson plans, papers for brainstorming and writing, suggestions/materials for curricular tie-ins or for fast finishers e.g. SQUIRRELS and PENGUINS. All materials come in black and white (except for the title page and credits page).
This is one of my favorite aspects of writing to teach and I always notice a marked improvement in their writing after we finish this unit. These lessons are best suited for students in late grade one and students in grade two. Please check out the Preview for more information.
I would love to here how you used these lessons with your students!
