Introduce Transitional Words

As your child's writing skills develop, he'll naturally be writing longer sentences and compositions. Teach him to read his work out loud so that he can hear whether the sentences flow together when he speaks. Then, introduce some common transitions – such as then, however, and next – that he can use in his writing to transition the reader to the next concept. As an extension activity, write a sample paragraph that needs transitions, and ask your child to add them.
