Connective Maze

Connectives are the glue that holds a text together. They join clauses (a group of words that includes a subject and a verb) together in a sentence, and they join sentences in a piece of writing. Connectives don’t have to be just one word like 'next' or 'and'. They can be phrases like ‘in other words’ or ‘In addition to this’. 1. Use the pencil or pen to connect the connectives. *Remember to not too dark a colour, we want to be able to read the word underneath the line you draw. 2. Begin at the 'start' circle. 3. If the word is a connective then draw a line through it to the next connective until you reach 'stop'. 4. Choose one of the connectives from the maze and use it to create a sentence. Remember a sentence MUST contain a subject and a verb. 5. Draw a picture to illustrate your sentence. When completing the maze, think about each word and ask yourself the following questions: a) What part of speech is this word e.g. noun, adjective, verb, adverb, connective? b) Can this word be used to connect words in a sentence? c) Can this word be used to connect one sentence to another?
