Free Preposition Instruction with Pierre the Proposition Mouse

Recently, one of my students expressed some confusion about
prepositions.  I reached into my cabinet looking
for manipulatives and pulled out a stress toy that included a rubber mouse and
his block of Swiss cheese.  I explained
that a preposition was anything that the mouse could do to the Swiss
cheese.  We decided to call the mouse
Pierre and had fun giving him his own “voice.” 
We placed him in various positions in relation to the cheese to explore
the many types of prepositions and had a good belly laugh.    
To share our fun, we decided to create the following YouTube

I also offer a fun, multisensory publication called Preppy the Preposition
Penguin.  Students get to complete an art
activity where they create Preppy the penguin as well as Preppy’s igloo.  Then students can have fun exploring the
different things that Preppy can do to his igloo by using prepositions.  The download also includes lesson ideas, fun
worksheets and three interactive games.  To
