I thought it was a really cool idea to get students to do a drawing activity, with me dictating a set on instructions to them. Of course, the instructions contained a lot of different prepositions.
“Prepositions are used before nouns to give additional information in a sentence. Usually, prepositions are used to show where something is located or when something happened.”
This is the list of instructions (prepositions in bold):
After a bit more practice and exposure to prepositions, finally, students were asked to write down as many prepositions that they remember and now know of.
Have a look at our class ‘wordle’ for this list of words. The larger words were the most common/popular for our class!
