Today our different classes worked on different activities, as some were guinea pigs and others were not.

1st period worked on essay revisions in the lab. Tomorrow, we meet in the media center to continue our work.

2nd period listened to audio comments and worked on essay revisions in the lab. Bring those headphones back tomorrow.

4th, 5th, and 6th period worked on sentence practice to ensure their essays will be in tip-top shape. The sentence practice can be found on the previous post.

We all reviewed the Fanboys Coordinating Conjunctions Song (W26).

This song is written by and owned by Inner Circle and is adapted here for educational purposes:

Sing along with your lyrics here!

FANBOYS! Whatcha goin’ Whatcha goin’ Whatcha gonna use

When the run-on comes for you

Tell me! Whatcha gonna use? Whatcha gonna use?

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Whatcha gonna use, Whatcha gonna use
When you join those two?

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Break it out go

For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So
Coordinate

the clauses you state

Stop the comma splices

and the run-on crisis

Each conjuction

has a special function

Here’s the rule:

use a comma then go!

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Whatcha gonna use, Whatcha gonna use
When you join those two

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Break it out go

for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so

You show a cause with for

You link ideas with and

You didn’t do with nor

You however with but

You show a choice with or

You show contrast with yet

You show results with so

Use a comma then go!

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Whatcha gonna use, Whatcha gonna use
When you join those two

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Break it out go

for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so

[repeat]

Two sentence’ with no break

Can’t have them with no break

Period or semicolon gives you a break

A comma and FANBOYS will give you that break

Hey!

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Whatcha gonna use, Whatcha gonna use
When you join those two

FANBOYS, FANBOYS

Break it out go

for, and, nor, but, or, yet, so!

[repeat]

No homework. 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th period bring your headphones to class.
