  • Ttwo similar objects (i.e. red flower and yellow flower)
  • A ribbon
  • Strips of paper
  • Black and red pencils
  • The symbols previously used, conjunction symbol



  1. The directress writes one label for each object (in black).
  2. The child reads each and places each object with its corresponding label, then places the symbols over the words.
  3. The directress writes and on a strip of paper in red and places it between the two object labels.
  4. The child reads the new phrase.
  5. What does this mean? The two must go together. So a ribbon is used to bind them together.
  6. This new word is a very important part of speech.
  7. This one little word unites these two objects. It is a conjunction.
  8. Etymology.....(conjunction: from Latin con - with, together; and jungere - to unite, thus conjunction is a word that unites others)
  9. The symbol is this small pink bar.
  10. It is like the little line we use when we come to the end of a line and haven't finished a word.
  11. That little line unites the two parts of the word that had to be put on different lines.
  12. The child places the symbol over the word and.
  13. The child is invited to change the positions of the words to see if they will make sense in another way.
  14.  She finds that the red flower and the yellow flower can be changed to the yellow flower and the red flower, but the conjunction itself must stay in its place: between the objects that it unites.
