(Free Grammar Videos and Activities) Correlative Conjunctions Song by Melissa... Correlative conjunctions are used in pairs to compare and contrast within literary and informational text. In this song, the father orders his kid around by giving directions using correlative conjunctions. At the end of the video, the kid retaliates by using correlative conjunctions to acquire both his allowance and freedom! Kids not only relate, but embrace the use of correlative conjunctions when writing.
Main Idea Song by Melissa... This song can be use to show how to find text evidence of supporting details to identify the main idea in simple text. The examples carry over to cultivate the understanding of young minds in such a way that they can transfer the information learned in this video to actual literary text or verbal classroom conversation. I've used this video as both a supplement to a basal text and as a stand-alone version. grammarsongs.com/ #grammarsongsbymelissa
