How to Teach Prepositions of Movement?
This introductory lesson plan, part of a six-part series, introduces the four common prepositions of movement: to, toward, from, and away from. Remember to check the student’s understanding of destination and moving in a direction when using this lesson plan.
When should we use to, toward, from, and away from?
- To is used to show the destination.
- Toward is used to show in the direction of.
- From describes the origin of an object.
- Away from describes movement departing the origin of an object.
To help students understand these concepts, this lesson spends a substantial portion of the slides walking through various examples of prepositions of movement. Students will have plenty of opportunities to practice building sentences that include to, toward, from, and away from.
