Printable manipulatives of subordinate and coordinate conjunctions, independent clauses, semicolons, periods and commas.
A handout explaining how to construct the four sentences types is included: Simple, Complex, Compound, and Compound-Complex.
Manipulatives are printed, cut up, and laminated for best shelf life. Students use the manipulatives to create funny sentences for each type. There are a few independent clauses that are more Halloween-themed, so keep that in mind if you prefer not to use anything that references horror. (Mild, I promise!)
Requires prior knowledge of independent clauses, semicolons, commas and subordinating /coordinating conjunctions (although motivated students could handle this without it in a pinch).
