Using A or An by Ofa

Today we were learning when to use a and when to use an before a word. If a word begins with a vowel (a-e-i-o-u) or a silent h for example I want an apple for morning tea or I want an ukulele to play with. When we use a we use it for words beginning with all the other words except for the vowels. The DLO above shows you what we use 'an' or 'a' for. I have also included pictures.


  1. Kia ora Ofa,
    Such a good skill to learn and keep in your head! I am much older than you and I still have to think really hard every time I write a or an to make sure I have the right one! It certainly is tricky if you don't understand the 'rules' of the vowels. Have you thought of printing out your poster for teachers to use in their classrooms? I imagine it would be a good way for others to learn too.

  2. Hello Tania thank you for commenting on my work. I appreciate that. My teachers has printed my work out. I think students in my class will learn from it. Sometimes I get mixed up with 'A' or 'An'.
    Thank you for your lovely comment!
