Have you ever used the books by Ruth Heller? She has many books on the different parts of speech. The one she has about preps is called Behind the Mask. The illustrations are beautiful (the kids oohhh and ahhh) and it teaches about parts of speech in a "fun" way. She has a whole series. Are you teaching ESOL? I used to make up funny... well, kind of funny ones. The worm is in the apple. There is an A on your paper. The mouse is outside of the trap! Anyway, Heller's books teach about speech parts they never heard of or thought about.

I have a song I got off the internet that lists prepositions and is sung to the tune of "Yankee Doodle." Google on "prepositions song," you'll get a few hits and then you just pick the one you can sing the best!

I have a whole lesson plan at school involving describing your room.

We teach the "preposition poem" for kids to compose where they list 4-10 prepositional phrases and end with the item found there. I'll freestyle for you:

Behind the bank
beyond the fence
under the brick house
beneath the dirt
is buried treasure. (I'm sure I could do a better job with revision!!!)

I teach 6th grade.

I have 2 great ways to teach prepositions. The first one is to have the children color and cut out a cowboy and a cactus. Tell them that this cowboy likes to jump. They should then come up with numerous ways in which he can jump. For example, he can jump WITH the cactus, AROUND the cactus, IN the cactus, OVER the cactus, etc. Make a list of these on the board. Tell them that these words are prepositions. Then teach them a song to the tune of Yankey Doodle. It goes like this: Until by into after from - across against with toward on - around among along of to - beside beyond below at through.

Hope this helps!!

We do the hand jive using the prepositions. We use an alphabetical list.

I went to a Tech. in Motion workshop at the U of Alabama and we used digital cameras to photograph the child UNDER a chair, OVER the table,
AROUND the corner, etc. Each child illustrated one preposition each with a word card displaying the prepostion. We also used a puppet for some.
They used the camera to do these by themselves.
They had a blast and learned a lot too.
