    I got to teach prepositions when I student taught too. One thing my cooperating teacher had showed me was to draw a face on the board. Then a fly and talk about all the places the fly could go - in the ear, out the mouth, on the head, above the nose, between the eyes, etc.

    My cooperating teacher thought it was important that the students memorize the list of prepositions. So we formed the "Preppy Club". Students had an "official" id card that listed the preps. on it and their name. When they showed that they had memorized the list, they got a "pennant" with their name placed on the board. Even the students who were lower ability were excited and did well. We lowered the number that they needed to know.
    Good luck!
