Review coordinating conjunctions and sentence structure
after you read The Indian in the Cupboard
by Lynne Reid Banks. Students work in pairs or small groups to make sense of 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!
Use this along with Literature Circles
