Coordinating Conjunctions!
EXAMPLES
What is a coordinating conjunction?
A coordinating conjunction CONNECTS parts of a sentence together
`
F
or

A
nd

N
or

B
ut

O
r

Y
et

S
o
It can connect clauses as well as two verbs or two nouns.
Pneumonic Device:
F.A.N.B.O.Y.S.

Do not use a coordinating conjunction to begin every sentence. Use this option only when it makes the flow of your ideas more effective.
Do not use a comma after the coordinating conjunction. Coordinating conjunctions are not transitional expressions like "for example" or "first of all". You will rarely use punctuation after them
Be sure that a main clause follows the coordinating conjunction.

"The Coordinating Conjunction." The Coordinating Conjunction. Robin L. Simmons, 2013. Web. 19 Nov. 2013

“and” (+) and “nor” (-) are used to show an agreement between items/clauses. “yet”, and “but” are used to show a disagreement between clauses.
“for” and “so” are used to show a reason between clauses.
“or” is used to show agreement or disagreement between items/clauses.
I wanted to go to the movies, BUT I couldn't go because I was grounded.
"but" is the coordinating conjunction
A main clause follows it, "I couldn't go..."
(because is NOT A COORDINATING CONJUNCTION! It is a subordinating conjunction)
Do not use a comma after the coordinating conjunction
I wanted to go to the movies but, I couldn't go because I was grounded.
INCORRECT example
CORRECT example
I wanted to go to the movies, but tacos.
INCORRECT example
"tacos" is not a main clause obviously.
I wanted to go to the movies, BUT I couldn't go because I was grounded.
CORRECT example
Rules:
Coordinating conjunctions are not transitional expressions like: "for example" or "first of all"
First of all
, never text during class.
"First of all" is NOT a coordinating conjunction!

This is a correct sentence, but not a coordinating conjunction example
You will rarely use punctuation after coordinating conjunctions
AND:

and
got in the car.
Tom's parents found out about what he did
and
grounded him.

and
Kate is outgoing.

and
nobody was surprised.

and
you'll be stuck with too much work.
BUT:

but
he wasn't in trouble this time.

but
the kitchen sink.

or
we could go out for dinner.

so my friend told me.

true, "Join

die."

nor
will they ever.

so
I'll need to work to get my grade up.
