Coordinating Conjunctions

In this Turtle Diary lesson, students learn about coordinating conjunctions. Coordinating conjunctions are used to connect two sentences that are equally important but can be used independently. The list of coordinating conjunctions include: for, and, nor, but, or, yet and so. During the lesson, students hear audible instruction at the same time the material appears on screen. In step one, the children sees two sentences. In the second step, the two sentences are shown as one with the coordinating conjunction. The lesson is short and to the point and explained in clear language easily understood. Simple sentences are combined with one of the seven coordinating conjunctions.

What Are Coordinating Conjunctions?

Coordinating conjunctions join clauses, phrases, and words together that have equal standing in terms of grammar.

What are some examples?

The most commonly used coordinating conjunctions can be remembered by using the acronym FANBOYS:
ForShe was amazed at its beauty, for she had never before seen solid gold jewelry.
AndI plan to jump rope first, and then I’m going to run a mile.
NorI’ve never climbed a mountain, nor have I ever swam across a river.
ButI really want to go to an amusement park, but there aren’t any where I live.
OrHe couldn’t decide whether to make cookies or a cake.
YetThe dog hates baths, yet he continues to romp in the mud.
SoI earned $15 mowing lawns, so I can finally afford the toy I want.


The key to FANBOYS is that you must use a comma before each when they link two independent clauses.
