Preposition Cheat Sheets: Preposition-Bordered Writing Paper
After using these preposition cheat sheets several times, students begin to store prepositions and prepositional phrases in their memory banks. No need for formal grammar lessons!
How Do They Work?
#1 Distribute preposition-bordered cheat sheets and assign a writing task (e.g. short story, essay, free write, etc.).
#2 Tell students to use three or more prepositions or prepositional phrases in their writing pieces.
#3 Tell students to cross off the prepositions on the borders as they use them.
Alternate Use: Instead of having writers cross off the prepositions that they used in the writing task, have students exchange papers and have peer reviewers locate and circle the prepositions that were used.
