The Function of a Conjunction
Song for Teaching the Parts of Speech
Music with Mar

 Vocal      
This song is available on Music with Mar.'s Jazz Up Your Language Arts  

Stand in a circle with the verb, noun and conjunction cards. Move around the circle for the opening. Have the cards in the left hand and use the right hand to “Whew, whew!” with the train. Stand and face into the circle as the song explains conjunctions.
     If you are holding a conjunction that is called, you go into the middle. At the part “Let’s move this train around”, children must form 3 people trains by linking a verb or noun with a conjunction and another verb or noun. Then the small trains move around the room together like in the beginning of the song.

The function (whew whew) of a conjunction
Is to link words together, link words together.

Conjunctions link up;let me explain.
Chugga chugga, chugga chugga, just like a train.
Chugga chugga, chugga chugga, just like a train.

Conjunctions link a phrase or a clause.
There are 3 kinds you should know
Coordinating conjunctions are:
and, but, or, not, for, yet, so

Correlative conjunctions are used in pairs
like both with and and neither with nor
They work together and not alone.
Not only with but also and either with or

The function (whew whew) of a conjunction
Is to link words together, link words together.

Conjunctions link up;let me explain.
Chugga chugga, chugga chugga, just like a train.
Chugga chugga, chugga chugga, just like a train.

Subordinating conjunctions are used as adverbs
and will come before a clause
They will be words like while and although
or maybe the word because.

The function (whew whew) of a conjunction
Is to link words together, link words together.

Let’s move this train around
A verb or noun, a conjunction and another verb or noun.

A verb or noun, a conjunction and another verb or noun.

Let’s move this train around
A verb or noun, a conjunction and another verb or noun.

A verb or noun, a conjunction and another verb or noun.

The function (whew whew) of a conjunction

Conjunctions link up;let me explain.
Chugga chugga, chugga chugga, just like a train.
Chugga chugga, chugga chugga, just like a train.
