During the Daily 3 Mrs Baldwin has been practising with each group on how to use conjunctions in sentences.
What is a conjunction?
A conjunction is a ‘joining word’ that joins 2 simple sentences together to make one long sentence. Examples of conjunctions include:
because but and
so therefore although
while or yet
also as while
In our groups we had been given some sentence strips. Our task was to match the correct sentence strips together to make one longer sentence using a conjunction to join it together. Everybody worked well on this task and helped each other, as it has been a challenge to find sentences that match and make sense.
From now on when we write sentences for our spelling words each fortnight we will need to begin using some conjunctions to make our sentences longer and more interesting to read.
Below is one group working hard on their conjunctions during the Daily 3.
Why do you think conjunctions are important to use?
Can you write a sentence using one of the conjunctions written above. make sure it makes sense.
Do you know any other words that may be conjunctions? If so what are they?
