Conjunctions – ‘so and but’


compound sentence conjunction exercise and so but for first, second and third grade.

A conjunction is a word that links other words, phrases, or clauses together.

Conjunctions allow you to combine words, phrases and clauses to form complex and elegant sentences. It helps avoid writing multiple short sentences which restrict the flow.

Examples:

  • I wake up early, for I love to watch the sunrise.

  • I have a cat and two dogs.

  • Simi was hungry, but there was nothing to eat at home.

  • I will have Italian or Chinese food.

  • Because I liked him, I tried to help him.

  • You will succeed if you work hard.

  • I was hungry, so I ordered a pizza.

In this post, we shall be covering three coordinating conjunctions – so and but.

What are coordinating conjunctions?

Coordinating conjunctions join together words, phrases, and independent clauses. They work as a glue help us join short and choppy sentences into fuller lines. The most common coordinating conjunctions are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. They can be remembered by using the mnemonic device FANBOYS.

  • For

  • And

  • Nor
