A great game to increase the use of connectives

Created by

A fun way for children to take ownership of connectives in their work, from starting sentences to those they may choose to use in a debate in class. My year 4 class loved using these and would refer to them within their individual writing. Only down side is getting the cards ready for the children to use, though the benefits out weigh this.
