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. They are used to connect people, people, and locations in sentences. They can also be used to connect time periods. You will find this used often in literature. These words are normally followed by an object which can often is a noun or pronoun. Prepositional phrases often serve the purpose of acting as an adjective or adverb. When used as an adjective they will serve as an answer to a question.

Activities include identifying the prepositions within given sentences, replacing incorrect words, choosing the correct preposition from a word bank in order to complete a given sentence, identification based on picture and word clues, and more. We work through a wide variety of skills here and provide answer keys for everything. The selection of practice sheets available on this page will help you learn how to use these word forms effectively in your own writing. Being able to master their use will greatly bolster the impact of your language. 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.
