When I was in 8th grade, we had to memorize lists and lists of prepositions and we even timed ourselves and being the competitive person.... well let's just say that I still know them!!! I even rattled them off quickly for my class and yes, they were impressed. It's a good day in middle school when you can impress them. So here's the list we came up with with a few more added on. They started in alpha order and then.... well, we got off track a bit.
Are you still teaching prepositions? They serve a purpose in sentences with prepositional phrases still being on our state tests.
