Indefinite Articles a/an

I desperately needed some fun, hands-on and engaging resources to practice indefinite articles with my pupils. I tried to think of printables and hands on activities that I like the most. I wanted to help children to practice the articles in a different and entertaining way.
I think I hit the spot with Indefinite Articles A&An Packet.

Clip cards - 

 Studies show that students learn best when learning is active, when they are engaged in hands-on classroom games and activities, and involved in what they are learning.


 

The children use a clothespin to pick the picture that begins with a vowel.
Then they flip the card over to see if they have chosen the correct answers. These self correcting
cards are highly engaging and motivating!


To make the cards you simply:
- cut around the edge,
- fold in half
- and glue.
You can laminate them if you like.

Flip books -

Students have lots of fun reading their flip books over and over again.



For this activity all you need to do is to cut out the rectangles. Arrange the pages one on top of the other and staple them to the base. The top rectangle will form the base for the flip book so make sure that it is left intact.





 “I Have Who Has”  game  (my favorite)

 



This is an easy-to-play game that is a great way to practice essential language concepts with the whole class. As students match up the answers on their cards with questions on other students' cards, they get valuable practice with vocabulary and listening skills.

Cut out the cards. You can laminate them or stick them on colorful cardboard.

Hand out a card to each student. Some students may need to have 2 or more depending upon how many children are in your classroom.
It is important to use all the cards in a set.

Choose a student to go first, and have her read her : “I have __” sentence aloud. This student will then read the question at the bottom of their card – 'Who has ___?' Then the student with the card that answers the question responds. Every card in the set is connected to a card before it and a card after it. To keep the game moving at a quick pace, all students need to pay attention to every question that's asked.

Play continues in this fashion until all of the cards have been played. The game will end with the same student who started.
