A little more "A or An" and a GIVEAWAY!

Happy Tuesday Everyone! I hope you had a WONDERFUL weekend and Monday! :) I am officially posting my first GIVEAWAY! I will be giving away my "PB&J A or An" activity to one lucky winner!
All you have to do is two easy things:
2. Comment with your name and e-mail address (so I can send you the activity) in the comment section below and I will select one person randomly to for the giveaway!
So here's what it looks like:
 Last week I posted about my "A or An" activity I created for students who confuse the two. Here are some examples of how we use them in the classroom:

First we created this quick anchor chart. There is one included in the unit but I wanted to write out the rules as my students told them to me so we created this one together. Does it start with AEIOU? Yes! ----> USE AN
No -----> USE A

Then we set up our activity and stated that AN words go on the peanut butter slice and A words go on the jelly.

One by one the kids picked their cards from the pile in the center and read their words out loud. The unit includes cards with pictures and words or just with pictures. I used the ones with words with my guys. Then we used our anchor chart to determine where the words belonged (A or An) and they put their card on the corresponding sorting mat.

We wrote down all of our words on the graphic organizer included in the unit shown below! We didn't complete the activity today so we're going to finish up tomorrow!

This also turned out to be a great activity for building vocabulary because we had to identify what all of the pictures were and my kids ended up learning a lot of new words!

 Also...I'm in a super happy mood today because I got here a little early this morning so that I could organize a bit. I bought these drawers at the beginning of the year and SERIOUSLY needed to clean them up because they had become a mess. A printed and laminated labels so now everything has a place and hopefully they will stay like this for the rest of the year!
