A and AN – articles

Articles A and AN set of worksheets for grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3

How do we decide when to say A and when to say AN?

A and AN are both indefinite articles and they have the same meaning,

The rule is really very simple. It depends on theĀ soundĀ at the beginning of the next word. It is the sound that matters, not the spelling.

When do we use ‘a’?

‘A’ is used before the words that begin with a consonant.

When do we use ‘an?’

‘AN’ is used before the words that begin with a vowel sound.
