Prepositions Bingo

Teach Starter Publishing
Google Slide, PDF | 12 pages | Grades: K - 1

Practice recognizing and using prepositions with this set of 20 bingo game boards and preposition cards.

Your search for engaging preposition practice activities is complete! 

With our Prepositions BINGO game, students will listen to 12 location-specific words and match them to the pictures on their game boards. In this way, they can better recall the word’s meaning when used in writing or speech! 

Over, Under, Through: Fun & Prepositions Practice, Too! 

Use this resource in your writing center, as a guided group activity, or a whole class exercise (see below) to practice recognizing and using prepositions. 

To play, students listen to the calling card and cover the picture that matches the heard preposition if it appears on their BINGO board. 

Through this activity, your students will use the most frequently occurring prepositions

  • above
  • around
  • behind
  • between
  • in
  • in front
  • next to
  • on
  • out
  • to the left
  • to the right
  • under

Scaffolding + Extension Tips 

Challenge students who already understand the concept to use the preposition in a sentence. 

Support students who need help understanding the concepts by using parts of speech posters or an anchor chart as a visual reference.

Many More Opportunities for Prepositions Practice

Use this resource as independent practice for fast finishers, and full-class learning opportunities like scoot activities, lesson reviews, formative assessments, and more.

🎭 Charades

Ditch the game board and use the cards as charades prompts. Divide your class or small group into 2 teams. Teams will take turns sending up 1 student to act out only the preposition on the card for their team while you keep score and hand the cards to the players. Once every student has had their turn to act out a card, the game is over and the group with the highest points wins. 

👯 Match Me If You Can

In your guided reading group, give each student 3 cards that only they can see. Using a game board, point to a preposition image and have students say the word as a group. The student who has the matching preposition card picture lays it face up in front of them. The first person to have all their cards face up wins.

🃏 Upcycle into Playing Cards

Print off 2 sets of preposition cards! Students can use them to play card games like Match It, Go Fish, or Snap.
