Here is a fun way to practice using prepositions and prepositional phrases.
Students create their own short stories or comic strips based on the prepositions provided.
Students Pick a Pie to start. Each pie contains five prepositions.
The task?? Write a short story or create a comic that includes those five prepositions!
Several prompts are provided, but there are also two blank templates if students have their own ideas.
Students can work independently on this activity or in pairs. Share stories and comics when done by letting students “Turkey Trot” around the room once you’ve hung up their work.
The activity can be differentiated in the following ways:
Let students pick their own prepositions and write them on the pies.
The teacher could write prepositions on the pies.
Vary the number of prepositions required-use the second pie template.
Included in this product are:
Six different preposition pies
One blank pie page (write in your own 5 prepositions)
One blank pie page (write in your own 3 prepositions)
Eleven writing page templates
Eleven comic strip templates
