I Have a Preposition For You! Prepositions in First Grade (freebie, too)

Even though I am teaching Kindergarten this year, I am still involved with First Grade.  My First Grade Friends have  pointed out that (at least for us) a new skill with Common Core...it has us teaching prepositions (CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.1.1i Use frequently occurring prepositions).  

In the past, we've used prepositions in our writing and discussed them briefly, but haven't really "taught" them formally.  They are certainly not in our reading series.  So to get ready for next year when I am back in First Grade, I decided to work on a supplemental pack for Prepositions!

This pack is 79 pages with lots of activities for all year long!
Contents:
Page 1 Title Page
Pages 2-7 Smart Board Discussion Pages /Posters
Page 8 Graphic Organizer
Pages 9-13 Supplemental Activities for Rosie's Walk
Page 14 Writing Activity
Pages 15-24 SmartBoard or Poster Paper Activities/Lesson
Page 25-34 Station Activities (Highlight Prepositions/Search for Prepositions)
Pages 35-58 Station Activity -Sentence Strip Cards for missing prepositions
Pages 59-60 Find the Preposition Reading Passages
Pages 61-62 Directed Drawing and Preposition Placement Activity
Pages 63-69 Easy Reader -fill in your own prepositions
Pages 70-78 Whole Group Activity for Acting out prepositions- can also be added to station for sentence writing
Page 79 Credits and Thank you Page

  13. Hi Jennifer! Prepositions in first grade - crazy I know. When I started teaching 1st grade, three years ago I was so surprised at the things I had to teach. I certainly don't remember learning things like prepositions in 1st grade!

    Your pack looks great!

  40. I'm in Twxas so we don't use the Commin Core. But when our state standards were revised a few years back, prepositions got added in for us too. Our current reading program does address it , but not as good as your unit. I hope I win!

  41. Hi Jennifer,

    I was just at a Common Core training this week, and we discussed the explicit teaching of grammar. We fully implement the standards this coming fall. This packet looks perfect for this.
