  2. Dear teacher,
    Lesson 3.20.3 Year 3
    Today’s Grammar Lesson is ” Conjunctions” Part of speech.
    A conjunction is a part of speech that connects words, phrases, or clauses to other clauses that are called the conjuncts of the conjunctions.
    Ex: I drink coffee, but my sister drink coca.
    There are 2 main kinds of conjunction:
    1- Coordinating conjunctions
    A coordinating conjunction is a conjunction that connects two or more equal grammatical elements. In practice, this usually means a coordinating conjunction will connect the same parts of speech, such as a verb to another verb.
    There are and, but, or, nor, for, yet, so
    For example:
    – Everyone sang and danced.
    Importantly, coordinating conjunctions are the conjunctions used to connect independent clauses together.
    An independent clause is a phrase that can stand alone as a complete sentences.
    Ex: He might have gone to the park.
    Ex: He may have returned home.
    These are both complete sentences. We can use a coordinating conjunction to join them into one sentence.
    @ He might have gone to the park, or he may have returned home. (Or is conjunction’s connects two sentences.)
    2- Subordinating conjunctions
    A subordinating conjunction is used to connect a subordinate clause, also called a dependent clause, to an independent clause. Unlike an independent clause, a subordinate clause cannot stand by itself as a complete sentence.
    However, we can use a subordinating conjunction to attach a subordinate clause to an independent clause. Subordinating conjunctions can either come at the beginning of a sentence or somewhere in the middle: they are although, because, since, unless…
    Ex: Whenever it rains, we stay inside and watch movies.
    We stay inside and watch movies whenever it rains.
    @ Correlative conjunctions
    Correlative conjunctions are pairs of conjunctions that work together. Some examples of correlative conjunctions include both … and, either … or, neither … nor, and rather … than. Each pair of correlative conjunctions has a different.
    Ex: I need flowers that are either red or pink. (lists two options)
    Ex: She would much rather play outside than sit in the house.
    Ex: The dog was as big as a horse.
    For quiz, I got 80% of scores.
    Thank you.
