PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If your students are anything like mine, grammar is not what excites them. Prepositions. Prepositional Phrases. Yawn. One of the ways I like to spice up my grammar instruction is through the use of mentor texts, but not just any mentor text - picture books!

Not every student who sits in our classroom is blessed with a childhood that is rich in classic picture book experiences. Every time I read picture books to my classes, they love it. Middle and high school students truly enjoy reading children's literature, and they rarely get the chance. Grammar is an excellent doorway for that opportunity.

This product contains two different files. One is a teacher answer key, and one is a student worksheet that features sentences from and about Giraffes Can't Dance to help students understand, identify, and write prepositions and prepositional phrases. They will also differentiate between prepositions and adverbs and demonstrate the ability to punctuate an introductory prepositional phrase correctly.

If you want to practice grammar in a moderately traditional way with an engaging set of sentences that exposes students to a classic children's story, then this product is perfect for you. Add in any preposition list of your choosing, and you are good to go!
