This document can be used as a poster, handout, or any other type of teaching tool to help your students form a basic understanding of what a conjunction is, and how they are used to turn two simple sentences into a compound sentence.
Print out both parts in color (or black and white and go over with highlighter), glue together onto construction paper and laminate for an everlasting poster!
Some other great ideas:
-Watch the School House Rock Video, "Conjunction Junction" (available on YouTube)
-Have students use highlighters to highlight subjects and predicates in different sentences on grammar worksheets to decide if the sentence is a simple or compound sentence.
