This is such a hard topic to teach. I racked my brain thinking of how to get through to the kiddos. FINALLY it came to me. I drug a table over by the carpet and we played a fun game. I would say, "get ON the table" "get UNDER the table", and "stand BESIDE the table". They thought it was the best game ever. We sure do know our positional words now!!!
No help was needed. :-)
then got to have a friendly leaf fight.
