Cinderella learned a prince was looking for a woman who could help him complete 10 prepositional phrases. The woman who could complete the phrases the fastest would receive a reward and become the princess.

The kind hearted Cinderella decided she wanted to help the prince with his phrases. However, there was one problem. Cinderella didn’t know anything about prepositional phrases.

In her free time Cinderella tried her best to learn prepositional phrases but no matter how hard she tried she couldn’t understand them. Frustrated, Cinderella cried aloud, “If I could only understand prepositional phrases”.

Suddenly, there was a poof, and Cinderella’s fairy god mother appeared to teach her about prepositional phrases.

A preposition is a word placed before a noun or pronoun to form a phrase that modifies another word in a sentence.
Prepositions are words like: On, in, into, from, to, at, till, down, during, than, up, under, toward, at, as..
Here is an example of a basic prepositional phrase:

Once upon a time.

An adjective prepositional phrase:
• usually answers one or both of these two questions:
Which one or what kind of?
• typically follows the noun it modifies


The girl with the blonde hair is Cinderella.

An adverbial preposition phrase:
• usually answers one of these questions:
When, where, why, and how?
• Usually modifies the verb, but can also modify, adverbs and adjectives
