What is this lesson?

Watch the train! Is it by the house? Is it going in the tunnel? Watch the train, and learn important words that tell you where something is in relation to something else.

This is one of the more challenging lessons on The ABC's. Don't worry if this lesson seems hard to teach. The material being introduced in this lesson will be developed more fully in later lessons. Memorization is not important at this point; the main thing is for students to start to become familiar with prepositions simply by watching this lesson.

How do I teach this lesson?

This lesson is an introduction to modifiers. The idea of this lesson is to introduce the basics of adverbs and prepositions in sentence form. Have fun with this lesson, and don't worry about teaching specifics.

Key phrases in this lesson are "by the house," "on the track," "in the tunnel," and "over the bridge." These short phrases (prepositional phrases) give information about where the train is. Other sentences in this lesson use the words "by," "in," and "over" by themselves, as in the sentence "The train is going by." These words (adverbs) give us information about where the train is GOING. The distinction is not so important. What is important is that students begin to see how these words and phrases add to basic sentence patterns.
