  1. The Power in the Preposition September 17th, 2012

  2. SPONGE: Solve the Mystery Harborville's Beach Snack Shop had been open only an hour when Max stopped in and noticed a new poster announcing a price increase. "I put the sign up this morning," Mr. Levine told him. "Had to raise my prices ten percent because I have so many new expenses. Like now I need a new window for my back room. Somebody broke it, trying to get into my store last night." "Have you called the police?" Max asked. "No. Nothing was stolen." He led Max to a small storeroom in the back. "I use this space as an office. Sat here and made my price change poster last night. Soon's I was done, I left it on that old desk. When I went out, I locked the door to the main part of my store. So whoever got in was stuck in this little storeroom. Nothing here to steal." When Max left he wandered down to the break wall, where Nathan and Trevor were fishing. "Did you hear that somebody broke a window at the Shack?" he asked. "Nope," Nathan said. "We've been here since dawn. Haven't talked to anybody." Trevor gestured to the bucket. "We've caught some big ones." Nathan stood. "But now I'm starving. I've got a dollar left from my allowance. If Mr. Levine is there now, I'm going up to the Shack to get a Big Beach Bun." "Better get another dime from somewhere," Trevor told him. "A dollar's not enough any more. As for me, I'm going home to get a couple sandwiches for myself." "You both stay right here," Max said. "I know which one of you broke that window. You'd better think of a way to pay for it, because I'm telling Mr. Levine."

  3. Who did it? • Trevor! • How did we know? • Mr. Levine said that the intruder came in after he had created his new price sign that was left in the storage room. He also mentioned that nothing was taken from the storage room. Therefore, no one but Mr. Levine knew that he was increasing his prices by 10% except the intruder. • When Nathan was interested in buying a Big Beach Bun, Trevor told him that $1 would not be enough. Nathan was going to need $1.10…exactly 10% more.

  6. Work Period: Mini Lesson • Prepositions show the location of a noun. • Prepositions show the relationship between a noun and another word in a sentence. • Prepositions begin Prepositional Phrases. • Prepositional Phrases must have an object.

  7. Work Period: Mini Lesson • Prepositions can also be used as other parts of speech such as adverbs. • To decide how a word is used, say the preposition followed by whom or what. • If a noun or a pronoun answers the question, the word is a preposition.

  8. Quick Practice 1) What’s the preposition? • He ran down the hill. • She put it on the table. • He hid behind Charles. • We can play after lunch. • The bird flew over the trees. • We are in the house. 2) What’s the prepositional phrase? 3) What’s the object of the preposition?

  9. Your Turn! • You and your table group are going to put on a skit. • Each of you must choose a different preposition that you will act out.

Tito went around the “DO NOT ENTER” signby the fountain, climbed up to the top, and fell into the bottom pool!
