Teaching opposites? It can be difficult to know how to explain opposites to preschoolers, kindergarteners, and even first-grade students. Once they know what positional words are, they will begin to understand. But, what are positional words?

Your students can learn along with Humpty Dumpty. Using this familiar Mother Goose rhyme, the students will read about an eaglet who ventures out of its shell, off of a ledge, and flies above, around, and below.

This story serves as an excellent precursor for positional words activities.

This resource includes a 20-page, printable guided reading book and a PowerPoint Show to use on a computer screen, TV, or interactive whiteboard. The book includes beautiful full-color illustrations by award-winning author and illustrator, Dawn Stephens.
