Using A, An - Article Worksheet, students learn when they should use articles "a" or "an" before a noun in a sentence. First, read sentence. Next, look at the word after the blank. If the word begins with a vowel (a,e,i,o,u), write "an". If the word begins with a consonant (any letter that isn't a vowel), write "a". Once you have finished filling in the blanks with "a" or "an", write two sentences summarizing times that you use either word. A good sentence starter would be: "I should "a" when...." and "I should "an" when..."
