The Missing Link
Students will be able to use transitional words and conjunctions to join ideas in writing.
- Invite students to close their eyes and imagine that they are in a car or bus, when suddenly the driver slams on the breaks. What happens? How do they feel?
- Tell the students that just like that scenario, sometimes readers feel an abrupt change when writers don’t use transitional phrases.
- Explain to the students that they will be learning how to link ideas using conjunctions and transition words in their writing.
