Finding Prepositional Phrases
In this lesson, students will find the prepositional phrases in the sentences.
This lesson is for third through fifth graders.
First, you will copy the worksheet.
Then, you will explain to the students about prepositional phrases. You can do this by writing examples on the board.
Example: Christy likes to write a synopsis of her short stories or books in a spiral notebook.
In this sentence, there are two prepositional phrases: of her short stories and in a spiral notebook.
Students will need to learn what prepositions are before they can find prepositional phrases. (See my lesson on prepositions.)
After that, you will pass out the worksheet for them to do independently.Worksheet - Finding the Prepositional Phrases
