Your students will love building compound and complex sentences using coordinating and subordinating conjunctions with these two fun activities/games that be played independently or with a partner. Students practice combining clauses to create compound and/or complex sentences by rolling two pairs of dice two different times. The first roll of the two dice represents your first clause (if you roll a 9, then choose the clause in box 9 from the first column). The second roll of the dice represents your second clause (choose the matching number clause from the second column). Join the two clauses together. Sometimes, this will make for a silly sentence!
1 compound complex sheet and 1 complex sheet (plus mnemonic device mini posters sheet, and recording sheet)
Students must rewrite their sentences with correct punctuation on the included recording sheet.
If you want to play this as a game, the first player to create 5 sentences that make sense and are punctuated correctly wins.
As a bonus, you get two half-page mnemonic device posters for subordinating and coordinating conjunctions.
Great for test prep, centers, learning stations, and more! Also, great for common core!
