  1. I'll admit, I hate grammar. I hated learning and I'm not a fan of teaching. It is a very necessary evil, in my opinion. I think that's why I've created so many resources, activities, and games related to grammar teaching and learning. This bundle combines many of my grammar resources. You'll find re

Description

This activity allows students to practice putting sentences together with the correct conjunction (and, but, or, so). There are 24 sentences in the activity and they can be used several different ways. My favorite is number 5! It takes a bit of extra work, but it’s perfect for a center activity and the kids like that it’s different from the norm. All activities require you to print the cards and cut them on the solid lines. Only activity number 5 requires cutting on the dotted lines.

Scoot activity— Pass the sentence cards (pg 2-5) around and have students record on their answer sheet (pg 11) the correct conjunction to combine them. Alternatively, hang sentences around the room and have students move around, reading and recording their answers.

Physical sort— Label four containers with the conjunctions and have students place the sentence card into the correct container.

Four Corners— Label each corner of the room with one of the conjunction signs (pg 6-9). Read each sentence card to the students and have them move to the correct corner of the room.

Response cards— Give each student a set of conjunction cards (pg 10). Read the sentence cards to them and have them hold up the appropriate card in response.

Match and Join— Cut the sentence cards on the dotted lines as well as the solid, then put a hole in the bottom of the first sentence and the top of the second sentence. Have students match up the sentences and join them by inserting a ring binder into the holes. I wrapped a label around each of my rings and wrote the conjunction on it, creating a set of 24 conjunction rings. Alternatively, you could label clothes pins and have students pin the two sentences together.

Board Game— Cut the sentence cards on the solid lines only (each card will have two sentences on it). Print and laminate one set of cards and one game board for every 4 students. Students take a card, read it, state which conjunction would be used to join the two sentences. If correct, the student rolls and moves his/her piece.
