Time connectives

  1. 1. Time Connectives<br />Exposition Writing<br />
  2. 2. Time Connectives<br />Time connectives are conjunctions (joins phrases or sentences together)that give us an idea of when something happens. <br />Using connectives can make writing flow better.<br />
  3. 3. This is a list of time connectives.<br />before, after, until, since, later, earlier, firstly, secondly, thirdly (and so on), finally initially, then, just, then, shortly, afterwards, soon.<br />
  4. 4. The time connectives we are focussing on are:<br />Firstly<br />Secondly<br />Finally<br />
  5. 5. Firstly, Secondly, and Finally<br />When we are writing exposition pieces we will be using these time connectives in our arguments because it is a useful way to list ideas.<br />They help us give a structured view of what we are writing.<br />
  6. 6. Firstly, Secondly, and Finally<br />Its also a good way to keep track of how many arguments we have (first, second, third,.....etc arguments).<br />Once you have advanced in your writing you will be able to use other time connectives that make your writing flow even better.<br />
  7. 7. Animals in Cages<br /> The children and teachers in Kindergarten at Matraville P.S. have been discussing animals in cages. We think they shouldn’t be kept in cages.<br /> <br />Firstly, not all animals are dangerous. A pet cat likes people and it wouldn’t hurt you.<br />Secondly, there isn’t enough room for the animals to run around.<br /> They would get bored and it would be bad for their muscles.<br />Finally, the animals have to be fed by the keeper and they don’t know how to feed themselves, how to find their food and how to hunt.<br />
  8. 8. Practise using time connectives.<br />Pretend your writing an exposition piece on why dogs are better than cats.<br />Think of three viewpoints for the argument section for this topic and using the time connectives firstly, secondly and finally write them down.<br />(Remember each viewpoint is a new paragraph).<br />
