Prepositions Prepositions Presentation Transcript

  • Prepositions
  • Mummy, what are prepositions? A preposition is a part of speech that shows a relationship (connection) between two things . Let’s watch a video to learn more!
    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4jIC5HLBdM
  • The video was interesting! Click on this List of Prepositions to look at prepositions that we always use in our daily lives.
  • Exactly! Today, we will look at three prepositions closely. They are to , up and off . I learnt that a preposition can tell us three important things such as the location (on, under, in), timing (before, after, during) and direction (from, toward, to, through).
  • Prepositions- ‘to’ / Part 1
    • ‘ To’ tells you the direction of a person, animal or thing ( nouns) or the purpose .
    • Direction
    • We use ‘to’ when describing where something is going from one place to another.
    • Examples:
    • We flew to Paris.
    • Mother is walking to the market.
    • I am going to school.
  • Prepositions- ‘to’ / Part 2
    • ‘ To’ tells you the direction of a person, animal or thing ( nouns) or the purpose .
    • Purpose
    • We use ‘to’ when describing our purpose or intention to do something
    • Examples:
    • I am going to scold him!
    • He is sitting down to do his work.
    • Ali is going to meet me later.
  • Prepositions- ‘to’ / Part 3
    • ‘ To’ tells you the direction of a person, animal or thing ( nouns) or the purpose .
    • Direction and Purpose
    • We can use ‘to’ to show direction and purpose together in one sentence.
    • Examples:
    • We flew to Paris to see Dad.
    • Mother is going to the market to buy fish.
    • I am going to school to study.
  • No worries. The lesson on ‘up’ is coming up next. Wow! I didn’t know ‘to’ can be used in two ways. What about the preposition ‘up’ , mummy?
  • Prepositions- ‘up’
    • ‘ Up’ tells you the direction of something moving away from the ground. The word ‘up’ usually comes after the verb ( action).
    • Direction
    • We use ‘up’ when describing something moving away from the ground.
    • Examples:
    • We followed her up the stairs to
    • a large meeting room .
    • 2. Put up your hand to answer.
    • 3. We ran up the hill!
  • The lesson on ‘off’ is coming up next. Hands up those who understood that! Now, what about the preposition ‘off’ , mummy?
  • Prepositions- ‘off’
    • ‘ Off’ tells you the direction of a person, animal or thing moving away from the original place.
    • Direction
    • We use ‘off’ when describing something moving towards the ground or away from something.
    • Examples:
    • Charlie fell off his bed last night.
    • Mother sending me off to school.
    • Father went off to work at seven.
  • Let’s do Learning Sheet 3 now. Wow! I understand how ‘to’ , ‘up’ and ‘off’ are being used now.
