Teaching a child 'prepositions' - words that specify time, place and direction - can sometimes be a confusing task. There are generally three types of prepositions:
Preposition of place - at, on, in, below, beside, under, behind, between.
Used to describe the place or position of nouns.
eg. The puppy is beside the pool.
Preposition of time - at, on, in, since, during.
Used to show when something happened.eg. I read my book during morning tea.
Preposition of direction -to, toward, across, into, over, onto.
Used to clarify the direction of someone or something.eg. The plane flew toward the beach.
