    Freebie: Transition Words Bookmarks

    After reading a story, the students could make this display using details and events from the book. The students could draw a picture of an event or detail and write a sentence about what is going on in the picture. The student will do this for multiple events and place each one in the proper sequence indicating the sequence of the storyline.
