Connectives

Connectives

Really useful 10 min warm up activity in a Literacy lesson. Teaching children to avoid using boring words like ‘and’ ‘but’. Instead to use other connectives. I just put this up on the interactive whiteboard and so one activity a day at the beginning of my lesson and go through the examples with the children. They look at the sample questions and correct the ‘boring’ sentences. Really easy to follow. Topics also inlcuded: langauge choice; narrative texts.

Linked to the Big Write and VCOP, pupils can develop their use of connectives. This has been written for a Year 4 class. This has been updated with additional slides. My class enjoy seeing their names, so if you have time edit the presentation and add your pupils names. I hope you enjoy using this resource.

Connectives and Conjunctions:  word clouds

Connectives and Conjunctions: word clouds

Two word clouds (based on the Wordle.net idea) showing a bank of Text-level Connectives and of subordinating conjunctions. Ideal for students to use to remind them to construct better sentences and to improve cohesion across a text. Particularly good for teaching of subordinate clauses at KS2/KS3 Each poster can be enlarged for classroom display or shrunk to be copied in books. Words/phrases are grouped loosely by colour.

Back to School: I Can Connect

Back to School: I Can Connect

Perfect for BACK TO SCHOOL or GETTING TO KNOW YOU units! These are two social games to help students realize their connections to each other. This game includes 25 game cards, and colored "I Can Connect" cards. Game 1: In a group, one student at a time reads aloud one of the 25 game cards. If the students can relate to what is on the card, they hold up their "I Can Connect" card. Game 2: In a large group, or in smaller groups, students individually share something relating to themselves, such as personal interests. If others in that group can relate they hold up their "I Can Connect" card. Both games are designed to let students see more ways they may connect with their peers, and to encourage discussions in class. Please make sure to rate and leave feedback.

Connectives posters with chain link motif

Several pages of useful connectives for VCOP display. I’ve used these in both year 5/6 and year 3/4 classes. A range of connectives are listed under headings: time, listing, argument, adding detail and result. Captain Connective (very muscly) gives the children a message: Make your writing powerful - use connectives! (Captain C was downloaded from a kind contributor on here.) Topics also included: word work; high frequency.
