Product Description
The detective frogs are searching for clues! Here are 25 pages of activities that target the following position words: on, above, below, in front, behind, beside, between.

First, the detective frogs are following frog footprints through the forest. You get 6 different pictures for each position word so that your students can practice each concept multiple times.

Next, you get a barrier game with a forest scene and woodland animals. You can use it like a traditional barrier game or as a following directions activity. I have included some sample directions
pages 9-10: forest scene
pages 11-12: woodland animals for barrier game
page 13: sample directions for following directions activity with scene.

Then, you get a listening for position words activity. There are 4 different mats with 6 pictures on each mat. Each picture targets 2 different position words. You read the descriptions to your students and have them identify the picture that matches the description.
pages 14-17: position mats
pages 18-19: descriptions for position mats

Next, there is an activity to work on using position words to describe the location of objects. You get 2 different mats with woodland animals and a page of forest objects. A student would put each forest object on the mat and then describe its position relative to one of the animals. For example, “The acorn is above the fox.” There is a sentence strip worksheet as well as pages that contain words that the student can cut out and use to complete the sentences.
pages 20-21: mats for sentence completion activity
page 22: forest objects for sentence completion activity
page 23: sentence completion worksheet
pages 24-25: word cards to complete the sentence
Last, there are two tracing pages where your student can connect the position word to a picture of that position
