Prepositional phrases can be tricky! This set of task cards will work well for reinforcing this concept. Each card features two prepositional phrases for students to identify. There are also three additional challenge cards to extend the activity and to provide for differentiation. Also included are a student answer sheet, answer key, and cover card. Use at centers, stations, or for fast finishers.
Hint: if your students are struggling remind them that a prepositional phrase always begins with a preposition and ends with a noun. You may also want to give them a list of common prepositions.
Printing and Cutting:
These cards were made to be printed in color, but will print out fine in gray scale too. They should print out with even margins around the cards; however, because every printer is different, it is possible that you may need to adjust your printer settings. Selecting “actual size” or adjusting the size percentage should do the trick. Cut the cards apart using the dotted guidelines (discarding the bottom strip). Laminate if possible. Another option is to print on cardstock.
Task Cards for a variety of topics can be found in the Task Card section.
