5 Preposition Worksheets for Place, Time and Movement

preposition worksheets games

Preposition Practice Worksheets

We use prepositions before pronouns and nouns to show their relationship. In general, the 3 types of prepositions are location/place, time, and movement.

  • First, prepositions of place show where an object is located.
  • Second, prepositions of time describe when something occurs.
  • Finally, prepositions of movement relate to the direction between two things.

For example, the ball is on the chair. In this sentence, the word “on” is a preposition of place because it describes where the ball is.

If you want to practice these concepts, we have 5 preposition worksheets to help you get started. All our worksheets are 100% free to use in a classroom or for educational purposes.

In this prepositions of movement worksheet, students can practice the various ways how prepositions connect with the movement of objects.

For example, we use words like onto, out of, into, toward, off, over, through, away from, under, up, and down. These are prepositions of movement because they express the flow and direction of each preposition.

First, students speak for each preposition of movement. Next, students have to write a complete sentence and draw objects if needed.

In this prepositions of time worksheet, we practice when to use “in”, “at” and “on”. To clarify, students have to circle the correct word for all prepositions of time.
