Transitions - More Than First, Next, Last!

Instructional Resource

Transitions are important in narrative writing because they help move the story forward and show the sequence of events. This resource helps students use narrative transition words and phrases beyond the overused transition chain—First, Next, Last. An Anchor Chart of over 50 transition words and phrases for narrative writing is included along with different paragraphs in need of transition words.
