Product Description
This activity helps students practice forming compound sentences and using coordinating conjunctions correctly.

Pages included are:
1. Direction Sheet
2. Sixteen Snow Day Task Cards
3. Sentence Sheet (2 sided) for recording answers
4. Answer Key

After teaching how to form a compound sentence with two clauses joined together by a coordinating conjunction (with the necessary comma added), put students in small groups. Each group will have their own set of task cards and each member of the group will have a sentence sheet.

The group members must first match the sentences to create clauses for each compound sentence. When they agree on the clauses, they must then decide which coordinating conjunctions might work. You might encourage them to use each conjunction at least once.

When all answers have been decided, students put their sentences a logical sequence or order. They then record their answers on the sentence sheet. Students individually complete the last section by writing two compound sentences of their own.

This activity also works well in partners or individually, and it would be a great literacy center activity as well. The answer key allows students to self-check their work.
