- There are two verb tenses---present and future. The reason is pragmatic; I simply couldn't do a screen capture of the man jumping and sliding while playing the game--not enough fingers. Some of the pictures, then, are what he WILL do, while others are what he is doing. It's a good teaching moment!
- There are different verbs throughout the book--slide, run, jump, go are examples.
- The prepositions go a bit beyond in, on, and under. There's in front, over, across, through, and directional concepts of left and right.
- The sentences vary in pattern a bit, so if I were to guess a reading level, it would be early 1st grade.
I made two books---one with all of the print, and one with blanks where the prepositions go. Each book has the preposition icons at the end. Have fun!

Preposition icons are at the end of each book.
I'm a strong believer in using a child's interests to guide my teaching. If Temple Run enables a child to want to learn directional concepts and prepositions, great!!! I hope this activity works for your kids, too.
