Prepositions!

My littles are working on memorizing these fun words. We are putting cute teddy bears over and under as we explore the wonderful world of prepositions.

These activities are great for my little grammar learners, but one of my boys is heading past the grammar stage to the dialectic stage. It is time for this man to take his memorization work to the next level. And this is what this teaching prepositions activity is designed to do!

Prep-Work

First, print off the pages on regular copy paper.

Next, cut out the book pages and staple together using the numbers at the bottom of each page.

Depending on the age of your child or children, you could cut out the pictures or you could leave that job for your little.

Finally, gather up scissors (if your child is cutting them out), highlighter, and some glue. And you are ready to go!!

Teaching Prepositions

The first two books of this series focus on the following prepositions.

  • about
  • above
  • across
  • after
  • against
  • along
  • amid
  • among
  • around
  • at 
  • atop

Before doing this activity, it is important your kiddos know these words and that they are prepositions.

My favorite way is to grab a teddy bear or favorite doll and have them act out the words. After you have done this numerous times, switch it up. Now you do that activity with the teddy bear and have the child say the proposition that you are doing.

You could even add a step in this teaching prepositions stage, and have the child tell a story with their teddy bear and add in as many prepositions as they can.

Cut and Paste Time

Now it is time for some preposition identification.

Begin by reading or having your child read the first page.

Next, have them identify the preposition by highlighting the word.

Finally, have them glue the picture in to correctly demonstrate the proposition.

It is that easy!!!!

Later on in this series, the children have a more complicated task like this one. They must glue on the trash can, then the pumpkins, and show the mouse doing what the sentence says!!!

 

Grab all five books here! This is a growing bundle…eventually there will be eleven books. The price will go up each time I add books……but you won’t have to pay more. You can just go in and download the new ones. 

I hope you enjoy working through prepositions as much as we are!
