Teach your students how to create compound sentences with FANBOYS conjunctions! This Lesson will provide your students with explicit explanations using mentor sentences, a fun stations activity, practice, application activities, a summative assessment, and 3 beautiful classroom posters!
The lesson consists of 31 PowerPoint/Google Slides to show your students how to craft these tricky compound sentences. Mentor sentences foster classroom discussions, demonstrate quality writing, and model the correct use of FANBOYS. Students will be able to identify each independent clause, and combine them with the appropriate conjunction. Each conjunction is explained in an easy to remember and visually appealing method.
Stations Activity gets your students up, moving, and collaborating. Students will examine mentor sentences, create and craft compound sentences using each conjunction.
Practice Word Document/Google Document will allow your students to practice combining two simple sentences with these conjunctions for a formative assessment.
Finding Examples Activity will have your students searching for their own mentor sentences with their reading. Students can then work with you to create a bulletin board of compound sentence examples.
Summative Assessment asks students to create compound sentences authentically within a piece of writing.
