This week we expanded on our grammar lessons. We gave a whole group lesson on articles. While this was a review for some, it was a new lesson to others. Articles include the words the, a and an. On our grammar shelf, students are able to choose activities that include matching a noun word with an appropriate article. For instance if there are multiple pencils, you would use the article “a”. If the noun begins with a vowel, then “an” is used. Montessori uses specific colors and symbols to help represent different parts of speech. The noun is represented with a large, black triangle. While the article is represented by a tiny, light blue triangle.
