L.C. To understand what co-ordinating conjunctions are and how they are used.
What is a conjunction?
Lets list as many conjunctions as we can remember on the whiteboard.
If a conjunction links two words or phrases together as an equal pair they are called co-ordinating conjunctions.
Kal bought a bat and a ball.
Both the bat and the ball in the sentence are equal pair.
Kim is young but she can kick the ball hard.
'but' links two simple sentences as an equal pair.
There are 7 co-ordinating conjunctions that we can use.
To remember all 7 we use an acronym. This is: FANBOYS
For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So
We are going to use FANBOYS to help us finish these sentences.
By using FANBOYS these sentences would become:
I like tea but I don't like coffee
I enjoy swimming and horse riding
Would you like fish fingers or beans on toast?
I was tired so I went to bed early.
Use FANBOYS to help us finish these sentences.
I rode my bike...
Can I have chocolate.. ?
I wanted to go out...
I like English lessons...
Create your own sentences whilst using FANBOYS. You should have 7 sentences at the end (one for each letter).
Home learners please could you take a photo of your English work and email it to Mr Hindman on Purple Mash.
