Preposition Worksheets

A preposition is a part of speech, just like a noun or a verb. It connects a noun or pronoun to another word in the sentence, showing us the relationship between them. Prepositions usually answer the questions where? or when?, telling us about a person or object’s location in either time or space. This information often needs to be given using a group of words rather than a single word. We call that group of words a prepositional phrase. The printable preposition worksheets below are free to duplicate for home or classroom use.
