Connectives sorted by function.

You’re downloading this resource from red label


Last year my class found it very hard to distinguish between types of connective and used them all in the same way - to join phrases/clauses. Punctuation was also not secure when using them. This year I am teaching them by function: coordinating conjunctions{ red} subordinating connectives (green) and Adverbial Connectives (blue) On the reverse are sentences showing the purpose and punctuation for each type for children to refer to. Topics also included are: word work; sentence structure and punctuation.

    I love how this emphasises to children the difference between co-ordinating conjunctions, subordinating conjunctions and connecting adverbs, in a simple and easy to use way. I'm looking forward to using this with my Y6 class in September. Thanks.

    Personally I find the whole triangle thing dull and off-putting-it is not going in my class.
