Product Description
No Prep, Evidence-based Conjunction Pack for "When" - just print and jump into making sentences with 'When'.

The latest research tells us that we shouldn’t wait for young children to master the basics before targeting complex syntax. A good place to start is teaching children how to make complex sentences with subordinate conjunctions such as 'When'.

This No Prep Pack is designed to introduce young kids to complex sentences and to help them to understand and use 'When'.

Evidence and further reading

Barako Arndt and Schuele (2013) identify a couple of important reasons for working on complex syntax with pre-schoolers and young school-aged children:

- Complex syntax skills have a large impact on later academic success (Scott & Windsor, 2000). We need complex grammar for oral and written expression, as well as conversational success in everyday activities, e.g. during playground games and sport.

- From Kindergarten, children are expected to engage in classroom discussions, to answer higher-level questions, to summarise and explain complicated material, and to write using a variety of “genres” (e.g. stories, procedures, opinions/arguments) that need sophisticated language structures and vocabulary, including complex syntax.
