I only have about 15 minutes a day to address grammar, so this unit took me 8 days to complete. I outlined the first few days of instruction in this post.
After we sorted sentences, I sent students home with a 1/4 sheet of paper to write their own sentences that used a preposition that told when or where. The next morning, we sat in a circle and passed our sentences around and wrote the sentences on this chart.
Next up: prepositional phrases. Since they were already comfortable with prepositions, this mini lesson was a breeze!
On our last day of instruction, I introduced prepositions that show relationships. This is the area of need for my class going forward. We looked at sentences with prepositions such as "of" and "from." Then the students completed a worksheet and then we discussed all of the possible answers that made sense in the sentence.
To say thank you for following me, I'm posting this mini unit and my Common Core and Commas mini unit (also aligned for Fifth Grade) for 25% off from now until Tuesday night, around 9pm. If you do decide to pick it up, I'd love it if you left me some feedback!
