Coordinating conjunctions include words such as "so, but, yet, or" and are part of writing and speaking that connect cause and effect. This is an important aspect of language skills and is a building block to advanced educational teachings. In the Turtle Diary game, students are presented with a sentence with a choice of two coordinating conjunctions. The student uses a keyboard to submit the correct response. Audible confirmation provides instant feedback for the student. This feedback allows the student to move on to the next game or continue to practice the game until he or she has masters the game.
