Frog and the log- prepositions and following directions

I am always looking for fun ways to teach prepositions and following directions. Here is a frog and log set. As you see, I laminated them so you can place the frogs behind the log and inside of the log. I just used my handy dandy exacto knife and cut a slit on the inside of the log so they could slip the frogs into the log. I give each student their own set of frogs and logs so they can both give and receive directions. We sometimes put up a barrier so that they don't have the visual cues and see if their partner's frogs and logs look the same. You could also use this on your wall and label the prepositions so that your students have a visual reminders of prepositions. As you see, I also made big and little frogs so they can add those concepts to their directions. Enjoy!

  1. Very cute!! In Spanish class we used a ball and a chair, and gave directions while looking at a list of prepositions. Fun in pairs or a good small group activity--gets them up and actively placing the ball :) Also good for practicing "Where is" questions: ¿Dónde está el balón? Está detrás/debajo/encima/delante/etc... de la silla.

    btw, you're amazing! tq
