What is a preposition?

Prepositions link words and phrases within sentences.

There are more than 100 prepositions in English. Many are used to show place (position) and time, or to introduce an object.

There are many one word prepositions, for example: on, in, at, to, under, above, below. There are also multiword prepositions, for example: next to, in front of.

What time do you go to work?

What time do you go to English lessons?

When is your favourite time of year?

When do you go on holiday?

When is Christmas day?

When do you go shopping?

When is your birthday?

When do you do your homework?

When do you go to the gym?

What time do you go to bed?

Practice using prepositions of time.

Ask and answer these questions with your partner.

Pair students, give instructions for them to practice using prepositions of time and monitor (8 mins)

Elicit responses using TQs to assess for learning. After going around 4 or 5 students as an example, ask them to ask their peers to practicing speaking (5)


30


Practice using prepositions of place.

Do you know where the ball is?

Use the following exercise to elicit and/or introduce other prepositions of place: under, behind, in front of, above, below, between, next to.*


Use target questions to elicit the correct preposition for each ball before revealing the words.


After revealing, see if you can elicit an example from a student, for example: There is a road in front of my house.


Use objects in the room and model positions to elicit the use of correct prepositions, for example: Where is David? – He is between Ana and Robert.


*Note: This is an extension exercise. Some students may know these words, others may not, but this is not important. Even at such an early level, these are common prepositions so it is useful to introduce them to students as early as possible, despite the fact that the focus of the lesson is on the prepositions ‘in’, ‘on’ and ‘at’
