Next, you are going to take notes the The Steps to identifying Prepositional Phrases!!!! You are encouraged to copy EXACTLY what you see! You will have approximately 5 minutes to copy the information on the next slide! THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE!!
[POP] Prepositional Phrases : The steps AFTER reading the sentence: 1. ID (identify) all of the prepositions in the sentence. 2. Place an open bracket ([) in front of the preposition. 3. Label the preposition by placing a “P” above each identified preposition in the sentence. 4. Place a closed bracket (]) behind the object of the preposition, which should be the (first) noun/pronoun following the preposition. 5. Label the noun or pronoun by writing “OP” above the object of the preposition.
If a verb follows the identified preposition, please note that NO prepositional phrase is present. When a verb follows the preposition, it is a verb phrase and not a prepositional phrase. EX: Jonathan used to play basketball. EX: Jonathan used to play basketball for DeSoto West. Become familiar with compound prepositions as well when identifying prepositions in sentences!!! EX: According to my aunt, biting your nails causes worms to form in your stomach. Special Notes
