This SMART Board lesson was created to be used during an ESL mini unit on English articles: a, an, and the. It could also be used in a regular English classroom as a supplement to a grammar lesson.
The first page introduces the essential question, and contains hidden text that must be clicked on by the teacher. The hidden text reveals that a, an, and the are called "articles".
The second page is a short story (written by me) that contains articles used in every way explained. Students can read this story and identify the articles. They can also go back to this story after reviewing the third slide to identify why I used certain articles when.
The third page is a simple chart showing the articles, when we use them in English, and specific examples taken from the story on the previous page.
The fourth page is a Venn Diagram that can be filled out, comparing and contrasting the usage of a, an, and the in grammatically correct sentences.
Thank you for your interest in my work!
