Common Prepositional Phrases

Prepositional phrases are a group of words consisting of a preposition and the object of the preposition. They are commonly used in our daily communication. When we define the position of a particular object in a sentence, the object that is being focused on with the preposition together forms a phrase which is called a prepositional phrase. Identifying the preposition is easy but when you ask the children about the prepositional phrase in it, it might get a little confusing but why worry when we are here? This article has some designer flashcards with some prepositional phrases which will let your kiddos understand them easily! Every time the prepositional phrase has the preposition before the object but as you know exceptions are always there and that exception will be ‘of’. To understand better, read the article.
