We have had some fun this week, while learning about adverbs and prepositions. The practice pages and worksheets, just weren't cutting it. So, I decided to take a different approach.
The students worked in pairs and created complete sentences using adverbs (where/when/how).
I asked them to get "into it" and "be the fish/fisherman"....they loved this idea!
They had to be very careful to make sure that their adverbs, didn't turn into prepositions (due to where they placed their nouns). I was excited to see that...they were getting it!! I listened to their conversations (some of which became a little heated...lol) and found that they really were carefully constructing sentences, engaged and also having fun!
I had introduced prepositions first....they caught on as I discussed the concept of how the preposition relates the worm to the apple (the nouns).
The worm is ______ the apple.
