Prepositions demonstrate temporal, spatial or logical relationships of a word to the rest of the sentence. That’s a mouthful, right? In this prepositions song, Flocabulary breaks it down for you. Here’s a story about a boy, his dog and a would-be bully. Can you spot all the prepositions?
I woke up. Got out of bed,
Put my favorite cap on my head.
Grabbed my dog’s leash in my hand,
While I tied the other end to him.
Got onto the skateboard, I hopped,
And my dog started running down the block.
My dog moves fast like a bobsled,
At least that’s what my mom said.
How many did you get? Let’s count them out…”out,” “on,” “in,” “to him,” “onto,” “down” and “like.” These prepositions are telling us where something is happening, when it happened and how it happened.
