I want to introduce my year 6 class to a range of logical connectives as part of persuasive writing topic. I am looking for a creative way to introduce them so they can identify them whilst reading and use them in their own writing. I was thinking of introducing them and asking the children to include them in sentences. Sounds dull, doesn't it!
Not sure if my suggestion will be any good as I'm only a trainee teacher but how about having a bright jazzy bag with connectives in them. Go round the classroom and ask a child to picks one out and form a sentence with it. Have a coutdown on the IWB to see how many they can do in 1 minute or 5 minutes.
You could try the Confounding Connectives game from this site.
Two fantastic ideas. I'll use them both. Thank you
