Grade 5 Quiz Use of Correlative Conjunctions – L.5.1.E

The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) for English Language Arts (ELA) aims to ensure students grasp the nuances of the English language to communicate effectively. The standard CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.5.1.E places emphasis on the use of correlative conjunctions. Correlative conjunctions are paired conjunctions that work together to coordinate words or groups of words in a sentence. Some common examples include “either/or” and “neither/nor”. The use of these conjunctions helps in providing options or contrasting ideas in a sentence.
