Books to Target Conjunctions in Speech Language Therapy

Updated: Apr 9

conjunctions syntactic activity ideas

A conjunction is a word that connects parts of a sentence together.

There are several kinds of conjunctions:

  • Coordinating conjunctions

  • Subordinating conjunctions

  • Correlative conjunctions

  • Conjunctive adverbs

Conjunctions affect several different types of speech goals. Here are some examples:

🌟 Utterance expansion. Conjunctions make sentences longer and more complex, making them a key component of working on utterance expansion goals. 

🌟 Responding to wh- questions (e.g. Why did the house break? The house broke because....)

🌟 Formulating compound sentences

🌟 Formulating complex sentences

🌟 Retelling stories, narrative generation

🌟 Summarizing

Here are some of my favorite seasonally themed books to target the use of conjunctions for creating compound and complex sentences!
