    I divided my class into groups of 2 students. I provided a Dr. Suess book for each group and post it notes. They then searched for prepositional phrases and put a post it note on the page. I then read each book aloud and the kids had to "snap" out the phrases. Of course, the first time I really emphasized the phrase and had the kids snap to the object. I would speed up toward the end of the book. Very effective.

    I also have my kids play charades with prepositions. They choose a preposition out of a hat and then have to act it out. For example, if they chose the word above they might use an eraser and hold it above someone's head.
