Learning prepositions with games

“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

Albert Einstein

As a 21st century teacher we need to engage our students in a different way. Learning prepositions has always been very difficult for non-native English speakers. Luckily with the advent of new technology learning prepositions can be real fun!!!

Flash Hangman Game: Students must guess the correct preposition.

Basketball Game: In order to win the basketball match you have to choose the best preposition for each sentence.

Preposition Desert – Help the baby kangaroo rats arrive home before it rains!! Students must determine if the word is a preposition of the object of the preposition.

Find the hidden mouse: Elementary game to learn prepositions of place. Point to the different points in the room to learn the prepositions.

Tidy your room: Learn the prepositions of place and tidy up your room. The teacher must dictate where you have to put every object.
