Today in English, we talked all about connectives and why they are important in our writing. Students were given specific examples, then we played a game on Studyladder where they needed to pick the right connective. This was a great activity as we discussed why a certain connective was a better choice than another.

After this, students were shown a basic piece of text which they needed to edit by adding in connectives and more detail. Some students created fabulous pieces of writing! It was great to see so many students immediately acting on their feedback. Most feedback during this lesson related to capital letters, spelling and rereading their sentence to make sure it made sense.
