Why Teach Sentence Joining with FANBOYS?
Mastering sentence structure is a crucial skill that sets the foundation for effective communication and writing. Conjunctions, particularly FANBOYS (For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So), play a significant role in connecting ideas and creating more complex sentences. By teaching students how to effectively use FANBOYS conjunctions to join simple sentences, you are equipping them with the tools to express their thoughts more fluently and eloquently.
