A conjunction is a word that can join words, phrases, or whole sentences. For example: and, or, but. You can use conjunctions to make compound sentences. For example: I made the sandwiches, and Jason got the iced tea. "I made the sandwiches" and "Jason got the iced tea" are two complete sentences, joined into a compound sentence using the conjunction "and."
Conjunction Squares Play this conjunction game with a family member. Write down the conjunctions and, but, and or on separate squares of paper. Mix the squares up, and turn them face-down. The first player says a simple sentence. For example: I went to the store. Then, the second player must turn over one of the other squres and use the conjunction to put the two sentences together. For example: but I forgot my wallet. Continue with the game, switching roles every other round.
