This quiz helps children identify which indefinite article and demonstrative to use. This quiz should be used after elementary school children have learned which letters are vowels. Becoming familiar with when to use the indefinite articles and demonstratives helps their sentence level. 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’.
