Preposition Basketball

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

This is a good game for lower levels to work on making sentances with prepositions.

Place a basket on a chair and divide the students into two teams. One student from each team (they take turns) stands a good ways away from the basket and throws a ball. The student has to make a sentance about where the ball lands- "The ball is on the floor", "The ball is under Anne's foot".

I usually let them make up to 3 sentances for 1 point each. If they actually make it in the basket, I give them an additional 5 points.

The kids love this game! An additional touch is the losing team has to do extra homework.
