Conjunctions : Learn the Use of or for Class 1 English

Conjunctions or connecting words in English are used in a sentence to join more than two words, sentences, or phrases. In this learning concept, we will discuss how students can use or in a sentence as a conjunction.
The students will also come across the following:

  • Definition of conjunction with example
  • Use of or conjunction

Every concept is taught to class 1 English students with the help of examples, illustrations, and concept maps. Once you go through a concept, assess your learning by solving the two printable worksheets given at the end of the page.

Definition:

  • Conjunctions are words used to join a group of words or sentences.
  • Conjunctions can join words that can be naming words, action words, or describing words.
  • We can express similar or opposite ideas in a sentence by using conjunctions.
  • An example of conjunction is ‘or’.

Examples:

We have joined two sentences or words with the help of the conjunction ‘or’.

Use of ‘or’:

1. We use ‘or’ to indicate a choice between two or more options. We use it to suggest that only one possibility can take place.

Examples:

In the above sentence, two options have been given where only one possibility can happen. The person can either drink a cup of coffee or a cup of tea. Therefore, we used ‘or’ to connect the two choices.

The girl will choose only one between two options (hotdog or ice-cream). So we used ‘or’ to suggest that the girl will buy only one thing.

Common Mistake:

Don’t forget to add a comma before the conjunction ‘or’ when it is used to join two independent sentences.

Examples:

  •  We should watch a movie, or we should play outside.✅
  •  We should watch a movie or we should play outside. ❌
