This worksheet provides a complete guide to compound sentences by introducing students to the FANBOYS (for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so). The double-sided sheet is sports-themed, and contains a concise overview of compound sentences in addition to activities for students to complete. There is also a unique graphic depicting the FANBOYS that is will help students commit the conjunctions to memory. The first set of tasks asks students to identify independent clauses and conjunctions; they are then asked to fill in the appropriate conjunction between two independent clauses to make a compound sentence; finally students will write their own compound sentences.
This writing-based worksheet helps students learn compound sentences through application, as opposed to many worksheets that rely on multiple choice questions.
