teaching in,to,on,into

Unread postby tbrides » Mon Feb 05, 2007 11:56 am

hi,
I'm finding my students are having difficulties differentiating between in, to, on, and into.

Can somebody please tell me of a good lesson for these?

Show them lots of visual examples.
The tennis ball is in the box.(in the desk, in the cupboard, in your hand)
The tennis ball is on the the box.(on the desk, on the floor, on your head)
I am putting the tennis ball into the box.(into the desk, into the bag, into your hand)
"To" can be handled similarly.

Hi, I'm Kate and I would like to share with other English teacher. Try to do a game. One pupil goes out. The rest of the class hide something e.g. pen. Then we call our pupil to go in and ask "where is the pen?" The pupil looks for, when find the pen tells: The pen is in the bag.
Best regards
Kate :)
