Read Like a Writer -- Transitional Phrase Scavenger Hunt and MORE


How do you teach students to find transitional phrases beyond first, next, then, or finally? Have them look for a series of words at the beginning of a sentence followed by a comma that they think MIGHT be a transitional phrase. Then, have them replace the words with first, next, then, or finally. If it makes sense, it's probably a transitional phrase. :)

The Three Little SUPERPIGS by Claire Evans has lots of wonderful transitional phrases. :)
