This collection of eight activity sheets will take your students on an exciting journey of conjunction discovery! Using the idea of conjunctions joining words and sentences, each activity is themed around highways and road junctions. Your children have to join them correctly in order to move on to the next activity.
The first activity explores what is and what isn’t an independent clause. From here, children have to put co-ordinating conjunctions between independent clauses before coming up with their own ideas.
After this, the children take a jumbled set of words and have to re-arrange them into compound sentences. They also have to plot a route through a word grid.
To finish the activities, the children take part in a test of what they’ve learned. By getting the answers correct, they reach their final destination.
Our children loved this and it has really helped them develop their understanding of how to use FANBOYS. There is enough material for three or even four lessons, and flashcards and answers are also provided. The activities themselves contain tips (on road signs) to help the children develop their knowledge along the way. The activities can be displayed on a screen to be worked through as a class.
I hope you enjoy using these as much as we have! Richard Townend
