Should I use a or an?
Knowing when to use articles, a and an, can be confusing. Making a big book to demonstrate when to use these articles is an effective way to teach children how to apply the rules.
A is used when it is followed by a word that begins with a consonant sound. An is used when it is followed by a word that begins with a vowel sound. Children determine where to place the pictures. In this activity the a or the an is placed before a picture (noun).
In the activity below, children had to decide if a or an came before the adjectives: full, happy, light, right, sour, sweet, awesome, enormous, empty, outside, open or ugly. The same rules apply as with the nouns.
