Name Three

ESL Prepositions of Movement Game - Writing and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

In this free prepositions of movement activity, students play a game where they name three things. The students are divided into teams of two and each team is given a copy of the worksheet. The teacher reads the first item on the worksheet to the class, i.e. 'Name three things you would never run towards'. The students then brainstorm and write down three answers in their teams. When a team has three answers, they put up their hand and the other teams stop writing. The team then gives their answers. If the team gives three suitable answers, they win the round and score a point, e.g. a tsunami, an erupting volcano, a man with a knife. The team then tries to make a sentence with the preposition of movement and three answers for an extra point, e.g. 'We would never run towards a tsunami, an erupting volcano or a man with a knife'. This process is repeated until the worksheet is complete. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Prepositions of Movement Pelmanism

ESL Prepositions of Movement Game - Reading and Matching Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 25 minutes

In this engaging movement prepositions activity, students play a pelmanism game where they complete sentences with prepositions of movement. The students are divided into pairs. Each pair is given a set of sentence cards and preposition of movement cards. The students shuffle the cards and spread them out face down on the table with the sentence cards on one side and the smaller preposition cards on the other. Students take it in turns to turn over one sentence card and one preposition card. The student then reads the sentence aloud, adding in the preposition of movement. If the preposition of movement matches with the sentence, the student keeps the two cards and has another turn. If the cards don't match, the student turns the cards back over, keeping them in the same place. The students continue to play until all the cards have been matched. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins. When everyone has finished, the correct answers are checked with the students and they complete each sentence with the appropriate preposition of movement. Students then test each other by taking it in turns to read a sentence card to their partner, leaving out the preposition of movement. Their partner then reads the sentence back to the student, adding in the correct preposition.
