A fun way to introduce and practice with those pesky prepositions.
First, students read a short text about "La Chupacabra," a legendary creature in traditional Latin American folklore. In the text, important prepositions are highlighted in bold. Reading may be with partners, as a whole class, or individual.
After reading the text, students try to determine the meanings of the highlighted prepositions based on the context. Students can then check their work and learn some additional meanings for the prepositions using the included list.
Finally, students retell or invent their own story about a creature or an "urban legend" using at least 8 different prepositions. Alternatively, to keep the focus cultural, you could ask students to research another creature of myth from a Spanish-speaking country and write on that topic. Most students will be surprised to find that they use prepositions all of the time in their speaking and writing without really knowing it!
