Transition words help us show how ideas in our writing are connected. Here are three common scenarios in which we might use transition words:
- When we're sequencing or putting events in order
- In cause and effect, when one event causes another
- When we're comparing and contrasting
There are many different transition words, and the word you use will depend on what relationship you are trying to draw between two objects or ideas.
Passages are included to help students correctly use and identify transition words.
This lesson will help students use and identify transition words.
Students are given 10 questions in which they will practice distinguishing between passages that sequence events, passages that compare and contrast, and passages that show cause and effect as well as reviewing what the different transition word categories are.
