Kids aren't always interested in compound sentences, but they are interested in anything related to video games! This is a clever format used to show kids how to write correct compound sentences--by relating the process to cheat codes used in the video game world.
This is an excellent handout to give to students as notes before practicing compound sentence writing. In your sentence structure unit, you can refer to the formula as a "cheat code". Kids pick up on the idea and seem to connect well to the concept. This is great to use in the middle school!
