When should I use a or an?
Using a or an correctly in a sentence is a simple skill to master but very important for future writing.
A and an are articles. Articles are a specific type of adjective.
They describe a single noun.
To determine if you will use a or an, you will need to look at the word that comes right after the article.
If the word begins with a consonant, you will use the word a. If the word begins with a vowel, you will use the word an. (Vowels are a, e, i, o and u.)
About this Digital A or An resource
You will be able to download this teaching tool as either a PowerPoint or Google Docs resource.
The beginning slides are used to teach students how to correctly use a and an. There are no movable or editable pieces on these slides.
Slides 7 through 10 are designed for interactive practice. They do contain movable parts.
On these slides, students will find a set of words. Their job is to determine if a or an should go before each word.
They will click and drag the words a or an from the right into the boxes. There are multiple words stacked on top of each other so they will not need to duplicate the words.
They are able to check their answers by moving the rainbow and clouds in the bottom right.
Under this piece, students will find the correct answers in order from left to right.
