We often must explain or describe how to locate things. If you ever played the game Battleship, you will understand what I mean. A positional word tells where one object is in relation to another. Positional words are prepositions that control a noun, pronoun, or phrase. We never give a second thought as to the difficulty of understanding positional words, but for some children it can be a big task. This is a vital skill that encompasses all content areas. It is tough to teach geography, physical science, and most forms of math without students having a solid base with this skill. Not to mention trying to work with a map of any kind. These worksheets will have students get very familiar and comfortable with using positional words.
