Reflection: Lesson Planning Use Prepositions to Add Detail - Section 2: Preposition Sentence Play


One of the great things about this lesson is that it serves double duty. Prepositions are great for transitions in essays! Students get a start on using transitions other than first, second, and third, and they also learn how to properly punctuate sentences which start with transitional, dependent clauses.
