Teaching Prepositions Through Songs

5 Mar

I have found that one of the best ways for my students to learn is with songs. Following is an example of how my first year English learners have mastered one of the most difficult English grammatical concepts: prepositions

In this video, Shina is able to use and recite all 48 prepositions after merely three days of listening and signing the song while actively seeking out prepositions in all of her academic subjects.

Sing Along with Shina

About, about, above, across.
Against, along, around.
Amid, among, after, at.
Except, for, during, down.
Behind, below, beneath, beside.
Between, before, beyond.
By, in, from, off, on, over, of.
Until, unto, upon.
Under, underneath, since, up.
Like, near, past, throughout, through.
With, within, without, instead.
Toward, inside, into, to.

Try it in your classroom and let me know how it goes!
