Lesson: 1: Signal Words (Fiction)
Students will be able to use signal words (if, then, because, since, so, before, after) to show cause-and-effect relationships.
(I) will explain that there are signal words that can help readers to identify cause-and-effect relationships. I will show a chart of everyday cause-and-effect relationships and identify the signal words in each example. (Example Chart is provided.) I will model writing a cause-and-effect sentence using the signal words.
(We) will work together to identify the cause-and-effect signal words in the book, When I Grow Up . . . by Peter Horn. We will also use signal words to create sentences about everyday cause-and-effect relationships.
(You) will use signal words to write sentences to show cause-and-effect relationships. (Independent Practice worksheet is provided.)
