Montessori Grammar: Articles, Day five
Well, this is certainly not my "shining moment" as a photographer. What this is a picture of is our grammar work from yesterday. Like nearly all of my photos, it will get bigger if you click on it.
I created a columns of buttons, beads, airplanes, erasers, and umbrellas. I labelled each individual item accordingly (a button, a bead, an airplane, an umbrella, an eraser). It was Kal-El and Me Too's job to figure out why some used the article "an" while others used the article "a". It was very easy later to notice whenever "an" was used in the books they were reading. We have to spend a little time contrasting "a/an" with the uses of "the", but soon we'll be moving on to adjectives!
