This week’s spellings are connectives that can be used as openers for a sentence related to the previous sentence or paragraph. For example: “The acting in the Lion King was amazing. In addition, the singing was superb!” They have been separated into two groups:
- adding connectives – add more information to the previous point
- reason + result – gives a consequence to the previous point
|LO: connective openers|
|reason + result connectives|
|As a result,|
|As a consequence,|
These connectives will really help with the children’s writing next week as they are learning how to persuade someone to do something.
