What our Prepositions and Prepositional Phrases lesson plan includes
Lesson Objectives and Overview: Prepositions and Prepositional Phrases teaches students how to identify and define preposition and prepositional phrase. They will learn how to identify and locate these in texts and how to write sentences that include them. They will discover that writers use prepositional phrases to add details and clarity to their writing. By the end of the lesson, students will have a firm sense of how to recognize and use prepositions correctly.
There are two content pages in this lesson. Students will first analyze a sentence that is missing a preposition. You will ask them what is wrong with the statement. You can then describe how prepositions help make sense of otherwise confusing sentences. The lesson provides several more examples of sentences that are missing prepositions. You can allow students some time to figure out the right missing word.
Students will discover many common prepositions. The lesson then describes phrases and how to identify a prepositional phrase in text. There are five sentences that students will study to see if they can figure out where the phrases are. Then they can list them on their papers. The activity, practice, and homework worksheets will provide students with more chances to hone the skill of using prepositions.
WRITE YOUR OWN SENTENCES ACTIVITY
Students will work with a partner during the activity portion. They will cut out each word in the list of terms. You will provide index cards to all the students on which they can write sentences. Students will leave out the preposition they intend to use. Then they will exchange their index cards with their partners. Finally, they will try to complete their partner’s sentences with the correct terms.
FILL IN THE BLANK PRACTICE WORKSHEET
The practice worksheet requires students to fill in blanks with the correct preposition. The instructions specify that some of the sentences may have more than one correct option. There is a total of 10 statements on the worksheet.
