Help your students make sense of compound sentences using the context of Judy Blume's quick Read Aloud about a boy obsessed with freckles.
Students work in pairs or small groups to understand the relationship between two independent clauses and choose an appropiate coordinating conjunction (and, but, for, or, so). If you didn't think teaching grammar could be fun, try this!
After the activity or in place of it, there is a worksheet with the same items. Students who had trouble with the activity can bring it home to work on. All items are original and derive from the story.
