A PowerPoint presentation that explains when to use the ‘an’ and ‘a’ correctly. PowerPoint explains the rule to help students remember when they need to use each word.

The presentation works through examples of words and asks students to identify when to use each article correctly.
Also included are four activities based on the lesson.

This lesson is suitable for KS2 with three differentiated activities.

Activity 1:
Students are given ten sentences with blank spaces. They will then use the rule from the lesson to decide whether they use ‘a’ or ‘an’.

Activity 2:
Students are given images of various words. They will then write ‘an’ or ‘a’ before the words describing each image.

Activity 3:
Students will be given a range of sentences with ‘an’ or ‘a’ missing. These will be cuts out. Students will decide whether they insert 'an' or 'a'. Once this is done students can work independently or collaboratively to sort the sentences onto a Carroll diagram.
