Sometimes all the rules for English grammar (prepositions especially) can be difficult for children to remember. But at Lingokids, learning is always fun! We even have fun while learning about prepositions. What is a preposition? A preposition is word that is used to describe the relationship between a noun and another word in the sentence. Prepositions of place tell us where someone or something is located.There are only three of them! They are at, in, and on. The use of preposition words is a big step in your child’s language education journey. This means they are using more complex sentences and ideas to express themselves. Encourage your child to use prepositions in English! Take their favorite toy and and place it somewhere in the room. Can they describe where it is? Don’t worry if his or her grammar isn’t perfect!

In the video, Teacher Meredith is playing a game of hide and seek with Bobby and Billy. Have your child watch the video once and then sing along as Teacher Meredith looks for them in the snow. When we learn prepositions, English phrases and sentences are more complete. Tell your child to practice the song so that English grammar is not so daunting! Ok! Let’s sing prepositions of place song with Teacher Meredith and practice prepositions!

Prepositions of Place Song (Lyrics)

Where oh where could Bobby be?
Oh where, oh where could he be?
Is he at the hut or behind the rock?
Oh where, oh where could he be?

There he is!
Behind the snowman!

Where oh where could Billy be?
Oh where, oh where could he be?
Is he on the branch or between the trees?
Oh where, oh where could he be?

There he is!
Inside the igloo!
