Figuring out an effective, logical order for parts of speech is no small feat. I am going to continue helping you with that, along with some introductory teaching tips for each of the ten parts in this Order of Parts of Speech teaching series! Today I introduce the first in my order: articles/noun markers. I tell the theory behind putting them first and putting them right before nouns (hint: they “mark” nouns!). Then I give you my tried and true article/noun marker rhyme, along with advice as to why the typical “a, an, the” order and wording doesn’t work most of the time.
