This quiz helps children identify which indefinite article to use. This quiz should be used after KS1 children have learned which letters are vowels. Becoming familiar with when to use the indefinite article ‘A’ or ‘An’ helps their sentence level as required by the National Curriculum. In addition, it adds a feather in their English and literacy cap.
Instead of ‘a’, if a word begins with a vowel, we write ‘an’. If we wrote ‘elephant’ but there was one, we would write ‘an elephant’ because the word begins with an ‘e’, a vowel. We always write ‘an’ for words beginning with vowels.
See if you know when to use ‘a’ or ‘an’.
