Words work together in a sentence, each one performing a different task. By fifth grade, students have become more adept readers and writers and they are familiar with the basic parts of speech. The activities in this unit revisit some of the basics and also add depth to their existing understanding. Students will engage in such topics as superlative adjectives, correlative conjunctions and prepositional phrases, to name a few.
Challenge students with a discussion about prepositions and conjunctions in this lesson. Your class will write a journal entry to explain the function of the prepositions and conjunctions in a specific sentence.
Have we got a preposition (or two) for you? These resources are dedicated to helping your fifth grader learn how to identify and use prepositions. These relational words are an important component of grammar, and these lesson plans and worksheets will help you teach prepositions.
