  • Write some phrases (incomplete sentences) on the board that contain conjunctions. For example: that jumped through the hoop, where mom goes shopping, etc.
  • Tell your class that you're wondering about the additional information that has been left out of the sentences. For example, what jumped through the hoop?
  • Explain to the students that sometimes important details are left out of sentences and today we’re going to learn how to use conjunctions (combining words) to construct complete sentences.
