Using Transition Words Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: W.4.1.C

Core Standard

When authors are trying to make a connection between two ideas or concepts, they will often use a transitional word or phrase to help the reader progress between the two. There are generally thought to be several different forms of transition. When an author shows a similarity between ideas they use additive transitions such as using “further, or moreover,”. If an author is pointing towards a conflict between ideas, they would use a adversative transition. Readers must quietly rely on these different terms to help them make shifts in presence of mind. These worksheets will help students see those pivots between different word types.
