Articles A An and The : Introduction and Practice
Follow me to catch every new product deal-- 99 cents for the first week!
Two grammar activity/practice pages and one page with step-by-step instructions for introducing the use of articles a, an, and the. I designed this for my middle school ESL students who needed more thoughtful practice selecting articles in their writing.
I print the pages back to back. We complete one in class, then the students do the other for homework.
The goal of these sheets is to provide opportunities for practice, so they are more straight-forward than "cute". But many of my students have said it was the first time they understood how to use these articles correctly-- yay!
Page 1: provides a guide at the top for student reference, then chances to select the possible articles they could use with singular and plural nouns beginning with both vowels and consonants.
Page 2: lists the steps I use when introducing this worksheet to my middle school ESL class, including highlighting, whole group, and partner work for scaffolding. Steps are simple and detailed enough to leave for a substitute.
Page 3: Students look for nouns in their environment or in text, select the appropriate articles for each noun, and create a sentence with one example they've found.
Page 4: Key for page 1
