This product helps students go deeper than just identifying correlative conjunctions. With these pages, students learn how to use correlative conjunctions in the context of their own writing. So if you want your students to correctly use correlative conjunctions, these worksheets will help you improve the quality of their writing! Updated for 2020: I have included a Google Slides version of the worksheets that is perfect for distance learning. Blue text boxes indicate where students can type their answers.

These pages cover fifth grade Common Core State Standards for:

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.5.1.a Explain the function of conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections in general and their function of particular sentences.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.5.1.e Use correlative conjunctions.

The topics for each worksheet include:
✅ Either…or
✅ Neither…nor
✅ Whether…or
✅ Not only…but also
✅ Both…and

This product includes:
✅ 5 Mentor Sentences worksheets: Each worksheet has 2 Mentor Sentences for students to analyze and compare, and room to write their own.
✅ 5 Definitions and Examples boxes: These can either be glued onto the page itself or into an Writing/Editing/GUM notebook as a study guide for future reference. These come 8 to a page in order to conserve copy paper.

✅ An answer key. You won't see this in the preview because, well, 5th graders can be very clever and otherwise it would free and easy to preview!
