Looking for positional word activity worksheets for your preschool or kindergarten students?
Positional words are words and phrases that describe the position of people or objects. Examples would be the words ‘in’, ‘under’, and ‘over’, or the phrases ‘on top of’, or ‘next to’. An example of a sentence containing positional words would be ‘The cat is hiding under the sofa.’
Some more positional words that kids should understand are, above, over, between, under, below, next to, in front of, close to, far from, near, beside, in, out, left, right, underneath, etc.
I have created these practice worksheets for kids to understand some basic positional words at this point. Most kindergarteners should be learning sight words, so chances are they can read the positional words too.
These worksheets have cut-and-paste activities, so your child should be able to read the positional words and see the right box to paste the picture.
Understanding positional words are quite a long process. It takes most children a while to first comprehend the terms and then longer to start using the words themselves.
Positional language is how to describe the position of things and objects – that helps them understand and explain in words more conveniently.
Some of examples of using positional words are:
The bike is parked in between the cars.
The butterfly is sitting on the flower
The boy went inside the playhouse.
A cat came in front of the bus.
