These activity sheets will teach your students how to identify and use prepositions correctly.

Prepositions are words that express a spatial, temporal, or other relationship between two parts of a sentence. Activities include identifying the prepositions within given sentences, replacing incorrect prepositions, choosing the correct preposition from a word bank in order to complete a given sentence, identifying the correct preposition to use in a sentence based on picture clues, and more. Note: While answer keys have been provided for instructors, in some cases, your students’ answers will vary.

Fun Fact: The rule against ending a sentence with a preposition came from an attempt to make English more like Latin. Writing guides allow it in most circumstances.
