Understanding sentences containing ‘either’ and ‘or’

Why is this important?
‘Either’ and ‘or’ constructions are an integral part of making choices or decisions/used frequently in everyday situations (e.g. in school, the teacher may say ‘You can either play with the sand or the water’; at home, mum may say ‘You can either have milk or juice’). The more this can be emphasised in everyday life, the better.

What to do

  • Gather together a selection of toys or pictures.
  • Ask the child to point to something, e.g.

‘Point to either teddy or monkey.’
‘Point to either the slide or the swing.’
‘Give the cup to either the girl or the boy.’
