(5 minutes)
  • To review, remind your students that a preposition is a word that expresses the relationship between a noun and another word.
  • Ask students to volunteer examples of prepositions (i.e. under, above, across). Record the list of words that students generate on a sheet of chart paper.
  • Use one of the words from the list in a sentence (i.e. The dog sits under the table.) Write the example on the board to refer to later.
  • Call on students to use other words from the list in a sentence.
