Our Conjunction Punctuation lesson plan teaches students how to properly punctuate a compound sentence with a comma before the coordinating conjunction. During this lesson, students are asked to use their creativity to color and/or decorate pieces of paper with coordinating conjunctions on them and then create a poster showing each coordinating conjunction used in a compound sentence, including commas. Students are also asked to practice identifying which sentences need a comma and placing the comma in the correct spot if needed.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to use a comma before a coordinating conjunction in a compound sentence.
