OVER the River, and THROUGH the Woods
There was excitement IN the air- literally-IN my 4th, 5th, and 6th grade ELA class. The students learned all about PREPOSITIONS and PREPOSITIONAL PHRASES. After an interactive Smartboard lesson, and whole-group practice, we listened to the song Over the River and Through the Wood and found 39 prepositional phrases!
Next, the students were given instructions to build a paper airplane and throw it- yes- we flew paper planes IN class!
Henry: "My plane landed NEXT to the door."
Anna: "My plane landed ON the freshly waxed floor."
Madeline: "The plane landed NEXT to the chair, and ON the carpet."
Joseph: "My plane flew THROUGH the chair."
