Learning ‘A’ and ‘An’ through activities


Learning ‘A’ and ‘An’ through activities

Learning a rule, variety in approaches and exercises is significant in teaching grammar in light of the fact that, because of this variety, we can address the issues of various students we have in the classroom. In this manner, students can incorporate what they realize in real-life situations. How about we be genuine. In the event that we show articles, it tends to be somewhat dry. In any case, it truly is conceivable to flavor things up with pleasant games, exercises. At the point when educators use exercises of fun, understudies are all the more ready to partake and face challenges. Having a great time while adapting likewise assists understudies with withholding information better in light of the fact that the process is pleasant and important.

Here are a few games/activities which our educators at the British School of Language use to teach the young learners in an interesting manner:

  • Passing the Bowl

This is an adaptable activity for kids that can be utilized for practically any subject. For this situation, you should cause it about what learners have in their bag, pocket or telephone, and so forth.

The manner in which it works is that children pass a bowl around the class filled with questions.

For instance:

• Do you have an orange in your lunch box?

• Do you have a pencil in your pencil box?

• Max do you have a mobile phone?

• Do you have a marker on your desk?


Whatever question they randomly pick, they need to reply before passing the ball onto the following individual. Clearly, these inquiries will prompt a huge amount of inquiries that utilization the articles an/a/the/a few, and so on.

The learners are divided into groups so understudies aren't waiting long periods between turns. This will likewise expand kids' talking time. The instructor ensures that all children have equivalent turns, understudies are approached to sit down subsequent to getting the bowl.

Toward the end, the instructor asks participants inquiries about other learners' answers. Tell kids before they start that they have to listen to another's answers. This will make them bound to focus between their own turns and, obviously, give extra listening and talking practice.

  •  Memory Game

This game requires a touch of readiness, however on the off chance that our educators show a similar unit on different occasions, it could be justified, despite all the trouble. They ready cards that are "matching." One card will have a thing and the other will have the fitting article.

For instance:

• a/sweater

• an/orange

• a/clock

• a few/water

At that point, removed them and young learners need to put the card face down. The main child draws two cards and checks whether it's an article/thing that matches. In the event that it is, they keep both and go once more. If not, they put them in a similar spot and the following student has a turn.

  • Oddball

Our educators evaluate this speedy warm-up or survey activity with our understudies. The manner in which it works is that they compose four things on the board, one of which doesn't coordinate. For this situation, you'd need to relate it to articles. For instance:

• apple, egg, rabbit, plum

Understudies need to state something like, "rabbit since it utilizes a, not an." Obviously, there could be numerous different answers too and we acknowledge them as long as learners give the motivation to help it.

  • Picture correspondence

This is another genuinely notable game, where one student portrays an image they have drawn or have been given by the instructor to another kid, who attempts to draw what they hear. At the point when the image is done, it would then be able to be compared with the first. This action is an exceptionally regular spot for the utilization of articles, particularly the speculation that we use "a" the first occasion when we talk about something and "the" whenever. It is conceivable to evoke much more utilization of these structures with pictures where "A gorilla is on the table"

  • Definitions game/Back to the board

This is another notable game that is effectively versatile to bring more articles into it. At least one learner attempts to clarify which word, expression or sentence they have been given without utilizing the words on the card until somebody gets it. Articles can be brought into this game by utilizing full sentences (for example "My aunt is an educator")



Our educators at the British School of Language along with our enthusiastic research team are always in search of innovative ideas to teach our young learners. Their sole objective is to increase their attention span and communicate concepts in such a manner that they do not take it as a burden. They should be looking forward to more. Games are captivating for kids, they learn even complex ideas, and their mind records all of it. We make learning a fun activity.
