This classroom display pack features a set of seven posters illustrating the FANBOYS (For, And, Nor, But, Or, Yet, So) set of coordinating conjunctions, using eye-catching images of animals or children surrounded by example sentences.
Blank versions of the posters are also included, so children and teachers can add their own text suggestions.
