This pack contains 24 task cards that reinforce writing compound sentences. Students use the task cards to practice using conjunctions to make compound sentences. These task cards work well as a supplement to your grammar/ writing lessons and can be used in centers, small groups, or Daily 5.
This File includes:
Pages 1-2: Cover Page and Credit Page
Pages 3-8: 24 task cards*
*Cards 1-12 - Combining simple sentences practice. Students are given 2 simple sentences and 3 possible conjunction choices. Students must choose the appropriate conjunction and use proper punctuation to turn the sentences into a compound sentence.
Conjunctions that are practiced are: for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so.
Cards 13-24 - Rewrite run-ons and simple sentences into compound sentences. Students must show that they know how to fix run-ons by adding a conjunction to create a compound sentence, or turn a simple sentence into a compound sentence. These last task cards are harder since students are not given conjunction choices and must come up with them on their own.
