    I have 2 great ways to teach prepositions. The first one is to have the children color and cut out a cowboy and a cactus. Tell them that this cowboy likes to jump. They should then come up with numerous ways in which he can jump. For example, he can jump WITH the cactus, AROUND the cactus, IN the cactus, OVER the cactus, etc. Make a list of these on the board. Tell them that these words are prepositions. Then teach them a song to the tune of Yankey Doodle. It goes like this: Until by into after from - across against with toward on - around among along of to - beside beyond below at through.

    Hope this helps!!
