Prepositions Practice

(take notes)
A preposition links nouns, pronouns and phrases to other words in a sentence.
A preposition usually indicates the temporal, spatial or logical relationship of its object to the rest of the sentence as in the following examples:

The book is
on
the table.
The book is
beneath
the table.
The book is leaning
against
the table.
The book is
beside
the table.
She held the book
over
the table.
She read the book
during
class.
In your composition book:

Use each of the prepositions in a sentence of your own. The preposition should be near the middle of the sentence. Write the preposition in a color.

above
between
near
past
until
Now we will move the preposition to be beginning of the sentence. Write a new sentence, but this time use the preposition as the first word in the sentence.
Write the preposition in a color.
*Don't forget the action verb*

above
between
near
past
until
This is called the Sentence Starter Preposition.
The abbreviation is
ss-prep
.
Write it in the margin of the line it is used on.
Underline the preposition.
Cut apart your 2 preposition lists.
Glue the lists in your composition book.
Use these lists to help in your writing so you
don't always use the same prepositions
.
If we move the preposition to the beginning of the sentence, we have a Sentence Starter Preposition (ss-prep).

Make sure you have an
action verb
with your preposition sentence starter, or else you will sound like Yoda.

Above the table, the cat
rested.
(action verb)
Above the table, the cat
is.
(passive verb)
On a separate piece of paper:

Write a 2 paragraph story about a talking turkey.
Use every Dressup in each paragraph.
Underline
and indicate the dressups.
Every sentence of each paragraph must start with a different preposition.
Circle
the preposition sentence starters.
Give your story a clever title.
Color a picture at the end.

You can only use one sentence starter in a sentence.
You can only use one dressup in a sentence.
However, you can use a dressup and a sentence starter in the same sentence.

Behind
the bookcase, the smirking cat rested
peacefully.
(ss-prep, ly)

DON'T always use the same prepositions! Your writing will sound boring if you do.

Pick 6 different prepositions.
Use each as a sentence starter with each of the six dressups:

ly
qa
vv
ww
bec
