Worksheet Overview

When you are writing, using the correct grammar is very important. 


This is because written English needs clarity to ensure it is understood.

In this activity, you will be looking at conjunctions. These are words whose job in a sentence is to link; think of them as a chain, keeping two things together. 


Conjunctions can be coordinating - they balance, or coordinate, two parts of a sentence. These are often referred to with the acronym FANBOYS.










There are also correlative conjunctions, which show a relation between two things.

For example:





You probably know lots of conjunctions already, so let's get started on some questions!
