PrepositionBuilder uses visual imagery to foster a deep understanding of how prepositions can change the meaning of a sentence. We target 28 of the most common prepositions and group related prepositions together (above, below and by for instance). The students are presented an image and are asked to drag the correct preposition to an incomplete sentence. Wrong answers trigger an image change, showing the student what the picture looks like with the preposition they DID choose. The student learns proper preposition use, regardless of whether they choose the correct answer. Since the wrong preposition sometimes makes for a pretty funny picture (The dog jumped through the car), many students get the wrong answer on purpose, just so they can see the other images. The beauty of PrepositionBuilder is that it doesn’t matter, they learn just as much getting the wrong answer as getting the right one. Because students learn no matter what they choose, we can take on the much more difficult prepositions like With, About, For, To, From and At.
You throw in really funny graphics and a 10 part rewards system and its hard to get kids to stop playing, even when the prepositions are starting to click!
