Practise Identifying Time Conjunctions

In this worksheet, students will refresh their knowledge on time conjunctions and know when to use them.

Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we’re going to be refreshing our knowledge of time conjunctions.


Conjunctions are joining words which link ideas together.




Time conjunctions are joining words telling us when something happens.


Look at the two simple sentences below.


I eat my dinner.

I have dessert.


Can you think of a time conjunction which joins these two sentences together so that they are one sentence?


I eat my dinner before I have dessert.




Before is a time conjunction linking these two simple sentences together.


We could shuffle the sentence and put the time conjunction at the beginning too.


Before I have dessert, I eat my dinner.


Here are some other time conjunctions:







Which time conjunction could complete the sentence below?


We won’t go out ___ you’ve finished your homework.


Until would work best here.


We won’t go out until you’ve finished your homework.


We could put the conjunction at the beginning of the sentence but this time, it sounds better in the middle.


Until you’ve finished your homework, we won’t go out.
