Transitional Words Worksheets: Improve Sentence Fluency
Two pages, answers on page three.
Page 1: 13 questions, includes word box of transitions
Page 2: 15 questions, two are for students to make up their own sentences using transitions
This worksheet is not a simple multiple choice; students have to actually write out sentences on page one, and fill in the blanks on page two.
Correct use of transitions is essential for the writing portion of state tests. How significantly it affects scores may not be obvious until one focuses on teaching transitions (it made a significant difference in my students' scores). Both the essay portion and the short answer sections of many tests will show improved scores with better understanding and use of transitions.
