Lesson Objective

Students will be able to use signal words (if, then, because, since, so, before, after) to show cause-and-effect relationships.

Lesson Plan

Direct Teaching
(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.
 
Guided Practice
(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.
 
Independent Practice
(You)          will use signal words to write sentences to show cause-and-effect relationships. (Independent Practice worksheet is provided.)
