SWBAT identify prepositions.
• What sorts of relationships do prepositions show?
• How do sentences incorporate prepositional phrases?
"Practice with prepositions”
Use a starter from the “sentence structure warm-ups” document—one that focuses on sentence diagramming.
Lesson Plan: I Do
A review of the warm-up reminds students of basic sentence structure.
Walk through a definition of preposition, generate a few examples.
Lesson Plan: We Do Together
Gradually release responsibility as we take on the task of finding a preposition in a sentence. Call attention to objects.
Fun student challenge: who can come up with the most prepositions in three minutes? A reward for the most successful student.
Lesson Plan: You Do
Walk through a few sentences from textbook, find the preposition in each. Then an exit slip: two sentences drawn from a classwork sheet ("Finding the preposition").
The brainstorming activity allows students to run as far as their vocabularies will take them.
Some students will only have to complete the more obvious example sentences in the textbook.
