Which Type Is It?

Transition Words #7

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a learning tool for identifying different types of transition words in sentences. Each sentence provided includes an underlined transition word, and students must determine the type of transition it represents. There are multiple choices given for each sentence, such as “addition,” “comparison,” “contrast,” “example,” “summary,” and “time,” and students must check the box corresponding to the correct type. The exercise includes transition words like “as well as,” “however,” and “likewise,” which are key in linking ideas and indicating relationships between sentence elements.

The worksheet educates students on the categorization of transition words based on their purpose in a sentence. It teaches them to distinguish between transitions that add information, compare or contrast ideas, exemplify a point, summarize information, or denote timing. The activity enhances students’ analytical skills by requiring them to pay attention to the nuances of sentence construction. Ultimately, the goal is to improve students’ writing abilities by helping them to use transition words more effectively, thereby creating more coherent and well-structured text.
