I introduce prepositions every year with reading the picture book, Where's Spot? The students look at me like I have gone crazy, and they don't have a clue why I am choosing this book to read aloud after lunch. As we discuss the sentence structure, they notice the use of prepositions to hide Spot. It is a great mentor text for my students to then write their own page of our class book, Where's Brutus. They not only write their sentence but most of the fun comes from being their own illustrator and creator for our fun flip book. Here are some examples from this year's book.
