Preposition Trading Cards and Word Wall! This is a set of 24 preposition vocabulary cards that you can use with your students in any unit dealing with ELD or English grammar. I originally created them just for my ELL students to look like trading cards and soon found that all of my students LOVE using them and are a great tool for teaching the vocabulary about grammar!
English + Spanish (A Spanish Prepositions version is now included for FREE)
This Preposition Trading Card Set includes:
• 24 vocabulary cards with commonly used prepositions. The preposition and a picture are on the front and a sentence describing the picture is on the back.
• The same 24 preposition vocabulary cards with the word on the front and a blank space for students to draw their own picture, and the word and a blank space on the back for them to write a sentence using the preposition correctly. This could be used as practice or even a quiz.
• 8 blank cards that students can use to add more prepositions as they come across them in their studies.
• A template for a labeled box that students can cut out, write their name on and color to store their preposition vocabulary cards in.
• A list of ways you can use these preposition vocabulary cards with your students that is based on Robert Marzano’s “Six Steps to Better Vocabulary Instruction”. This list helps me because I can show parents, administrators, other teachers, etc. that I’m using research-based methods in my classroom.
• An enlarged set of these cards that you can post in your classroom as an ELD or English grammar word wall or bulletin board.
• 2 blank templates with the same border that you can write your own preposition vocabulary on if there are other words you’d like to add to your word wall. I love having my students do this because they feel a sense of pride and ownership as they look at their own words and pictures that they added to the word wall.
• Trading Card Manual: 15 pages of tips and ideas on how to use these trading cards in your class.
• Spanish Prepositions set now included for FREE to use with Spanish speaking or bilingual students
I print these preposition cards out double sided on card stock so they look and feel like real trading cards but they work just as well on regular paper.
