A collection of worksheets that help students learn the proper use of articles of the English Language.

What are Articles in the English language? They are words that give shape to nouns and tell us if they are specific or nonspecific. The general list of articles includes the words (a/an/the). Articles can be used to pace a sentence as being general or dialed into the thought of one day. For example, take a look at how we can transform the use of articles: After the long practice, the player smelled particularly bad. In this case we use the article (the). We can transform the sentence to a more general statement by substitute the article (the) for the article (a): After a long practice, a player smelled particularly bad.

There are commonly thought to be two different types of articles. Definite articles are defined by the use of the word (the). Definite articles limit the meaning of a noun to one specific thing, as the title indicates. They can be used to define singular, plural, and even uncountable nouns. Indefinite articles indicate a more general idea or concept. Indefinite articles are usually pointed out by using the words: a or and. These worksheets will help you learn to recognize the use of articles as well as help you learn how to properly form sentences with the use of articles. These worksheets will help students really begin to ponder the usage of articles in their writing. We will begin by identifying their use in basic sentences and then creating our own to match nouns that we are presented with. We will also explore some writing skills and have students write completely original sentences using this skill at all levels along the way. This series of worksheets should help students understand the concept and then begin to use it in practice.
