Each year during our study of prepositions, I introduce my students to an art activity called Creating Picture Perfect Prepositions with Artwork. It is a fun and effective activity I use to engage, reinforce, and assess my students' understanding of prePOSITIONs as I assess their understanding of the functions of prepositions in grammar.
Students LOVE this type of activity- it addresses different learning styles and is an effective way to readily assess a student's level of mastery.
Students will demonstrate their understanding of prepositions by producing an authentic piece of artwork that is representative of the positional or relational information given in an explicitly detailed sentence.
Included in this resource:
40 task cards to give your students plenty of practice using prepositions!
This resource addresses the following common prepositions:
above, across, along, among, around, at, behind, beneath, beside, between, by, down, for , from, in, in front of, inside, near, of, on, on top of, over, through, to, toward, under, underneath, upon, and with.
If you liked ADJECTIVE ARTWORK, you will also enjoy watching your students dive into prepositions using this unconventional grammar activity!
Printable student answer documents are also provided as well as color coded rubrics for ease in grading!
Students and teachers work REALLY hard these days, so it is very refreshing when meaningful activities can also be FUN!
