Language Teaching: Prepositions and Conjunctives.
Hobson, Arline B.
This bulletin is the first of three designed to give detailed help on fostering language competence in 4- to 6-year-old school children. The bulletin introduces the teacher to a group of prepositions and conjunctions (chosen from the Dolch Basic Sight Vocabulary List of 220 Words) which are important to the meaning of sentences. The list was compiled from those words occurring most frequently in ordinary written communication. The words occur with high frequency in primers and first grade materials. Three-fourths of the document is devoted to describing the potential function of these conjunctives and prepositions in the language, and making suggestions to the teacher and the reader, alerting them to the primary position of such words in language learning.
