conjunction worksheets for kids

A conjunction is a word used to join or connect words, sentences, phrases, or clauses together.

Conjunctions allow you to combine words, phrases, and clauses to form complex and elegant sentences. It helps avoid writing multiple short sentences which restrict the flow.

Examples:

  • I told her to leave, for I was feeling sick.
  • I will have soup and a slice of garlic bread.
  • I want to go out and play, but I haven’t finished my homework.
  • I will buy this dress in yellow or orange color.
  • I am studying because I have a test tomorrow.
  • You can join me if you finish your work on time.
  • I was feeling sick, so I took some medicines.

In this post, we shall be covering five coordinating conjunctions – because so but or and.

Do try Pack 1 of conjunction worksheets which covers the conjunctions ‘so but and.’ It will be easier, simpler, and apt to introduce conjunctions.

What are coordinating conjunctions?

Coordinating conjunctions join together words, phrases, and independent clauses. They work as a glue to help us join short and choppy sentences into fuller lines. The most common coordinating conjunctions are for, and, nor, but, or, yet, and so. They can be remembered by using the mnemonic device FANBOYS.
