Build sentence fluency in your students' writing with this practice activity in which they will combine given clauses by choosing a FANBOYS coordinating conjunction.
A presentation for you to project on your whiteboard will review the grammar terms, including an example compound sentence for each of the coordinating conjunctions.
Provide a mini anchor chart for students to use as they practice and to keep in their interactive notebooks for future reference.
Each card provides two clauses that students must combine using a coordinating conjunction to write a compound sentence. To build critical thinking skills and creativity, have students compare their sentences with a partner (because multiple correct sentences are possible for most clause pairs) or challenge them to create as many different sentences as they can with a given task card.
♦ 15-slide Presentation to introduce or review terms
