Connectives Posters

Age Range: 5 - 11

Connectives Posters

Do your children forget to use connectives in their writing? We have three resources below that can be used to encourage children to use different connectives to improve their work:

  • Use the resources as posters and add them to a classroom display. Two different versions are available, to match the age / ability of your children.
  • Print the resources and use them as mats for children to refer to while writing at their tables.
  • Ask children to find their own connectives and build up their own collection of words by writing them on our blank resource.
  • Print the blank resource and use it as part of an interactive display, encouraging children to add connectives as they discover new ones.
  • Use the resources as teaching tools. Discuss each connective and think about when and how it might be used.
  • Choose a connective from the resources and ask children to write a sentence that includes it.
  • Have a 'Connective of the Day' and challenge children to include the chosen connectives in their speech / writing during the day.

Do you have any other good ideas for using these resources in your classroom? Leave a comment below...
