Learn about Prepositions with our Fun Videos!

Wondering how to introduce prepositions? Looking for cute and quirky preposition songs for kids? You’re in the right place.

Join the preposition-loving cheese as we explore the different types of prepositions, including ‘place’ prepositions and ‘motion’ prepositions.

What is a preposition?

Think back to your time at school. Do you recall what a preposition actually is? If not – don’t panic. We’ve got you covered.

Here’s a fairly simple definition:

A preposition is a word that relates two or more parts of a sentence using location, direction or time.

If you still don’t quite get it, an example should help. Imagine a wedge of cheese with legs, arms, and a little cheese face. Now imagine that Mr. Cheese is in the same room as a dog. We’ll call the dog Roger. Here are a few different scenarios:

  • Happy Cheese is on Roger the dog.
  • Happy Cheese is beside Roger the dog.
  • Happy Cheese walks toward Roger the dog.
  • Happy Cheese is in front of Roger the dog.

The phrases onbesidetoward, and in front of relate Mr. Cheese to Roger the dog. These words are prepositions.

Preposition videos for kids

Our simple preposition videos make explaining a fairly complex word group fun and easy. A whole cast of characters will walk you through some of the most commonly used prepositions in our preposition videos for ESL and ELL students.
