This product was designed for ELL students (can be used with all students) who were struggling with the a versus an rule. It was designed to have students use the anchor charts and practice activity to help them decide if they should use a or an before a noun when forming sentences. Also great for teaching vocabulary to ELLS! For best results print out all of the pages onto cardstock and laminate.
Use the anchor chart to explain how to determine whether to use a or an. Anchor charts are available in both black and white.
For the sorting activity give students the a (jelly slice) and an (peanut butter slice) sorting mats.
Print out all of the a versus an slices of bread and have students place them on the correct sorting mat and use the recording sheet to record their answers and to use their words in sentences!
- 2 anchor charts (one in color and one in black and white)
- a and an sorting mats
- 30 slices of bread with pictures of nouns for students to decide if they should use a or an with that words
- 30 slices of bread with pictures of nouns and names of nouns for students to decide if they should use a or an with that words
- 6 blank slices of bread to add your own pictures or words
