Many youngsters (and adults!) confuse the words than
. But than
is for making comparisons (more than, bigger than), and then
is a time word (Then we went out.).
This resource helps users decide when to use the word than
, and when to use then
The set includes:
• a 2-sided worksheet with fill-in-the-blanks and sentence writing (easier)
• a 2-sided worksheet with fill-in-the-blanks and sentence writing (more challenging)
• To the Teacher
• 2 Posters
• Answer Keys
The first poster shows 3 children who are big, bigger, and biggest. This is the word than
The second poster demonstrates the difference between than
(bigger than) and then
(First I made my sandwich. Then I ate it.)
Both posters can be printed up on a single 8.5 X 11 piece of paper, or tiled on 4 such pages. Directions for printing the poster are included in the To the Teacher.
The two worksheets (both 2-sided) can be used to differentiate the task
because they are on different reading levels. Students first read 10 sentences and decide between than
to fill in the blanks. Then they write their own sentences using the two words.
