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.
