The VOWELS are: a, e, i, o, and u.
All the other letters in the alphabet are called CONSONANTS.

Look at the words below carefully.
Decide if they start with a vowel or a consonant.

Copy down the words on a piece of paper, making two lists.
The first list should be all the words that start with a vowel.
The second list should be all the words that start with a consonant.
*Usually if a word begins with a consonant you use 'a' before it.*
Eg. I can see a lion.
*If a word begins with a vowel you use 'an' before it.*
Eg. I can see an alligator.
Insert either 'a' or 'an' into these sentences to make them correct.

Tense: Past, Present and Future
When you are talking or writing you have to think carefully about WHEN something happens.
Verbs (doing words) come in three tenses: past, present, and future. The past is used to describe things that have already happened (e.g., earlier in the day, yesterday, last week, three years ago). The present tense is used to describe things that are happening right now. The future tense describes things that have yet to happen (e.g., later, tomorrow, next week, next year, three years from now).
Example: PAST: I ate a sandwich yesterday.
PRESENT: I am eating a sandwich.
FUTURE: I will eat a sandwich tomorrow
( the verb = ate, eating and eat )
Now grab a pencil and piece of paper and try this worksheet.
