Ideally, they will say how the paragraph flows more smoothly because of the added transitions. See if they can use all the words in one story that makes sense.
After, have the students total the number up and write it on their paper. Additionally, the students will take a paragraph with missing transitions and add at least six transitions to help with flow.
Examples Some teachers find it useful to teach transition words by purpose: words used to help sequence ideas or transition between sentences or paragraphs, words that can be used to show time, those that help writers wrap up or summarize a story, and others.
A helpful way to begin teaching students about transition words: Call attention to ways transition words are used within your classroom read aloud or the book being used for reading groups. Use these models as a way to discuss students' own writing.
Without giving any hint as to what the lesson will be, the teacher tells the students to read through the paragraph and underline as many transitions as they find.
