Go Direct for Better Paragraphs
In fifth grade, students are asked to write a variety of paragraphs, but often aren’t sure how to structure the sentences within them. They know what they want to say, but may need help putting it in order. “Transition words” are tools that will help your fifth grader align his sentences and improve the overall flow of his paragraphs. If your child’s paragraphs need to transition from out-of-order to organized and smooth, try this simple, real-life activity.
