Fanny, Ana, and Edwin were particularly excited to learn that by introducing today's grammar point into their writing. Learning how to use AND and BUT with commas.
For example, we wrote examples sentences on the board and told ss to connect them with a conjunction: "The food is good. The food is expensive." Fanny wrote, "The food is good and expensive." Then Ana said, "But couldn't you also say, 'the food is good but expensive?'" And then Edwin came up to the board on his own and wrote, "The food is good, but it's expensive" and asked if he could do that too."—Yes! By asking so many questions and by playing with comma vs no comma, I knew they were getting it!
