Here’s a little poem from Fran Maltz, ESL tutor at the Newton Free Library. She wrote it to help her learners remember when to use the prepositions associated with communicating time (dates, days of the week, specific time of day, months, general times of the day). She hopes this is helpful to someone!
Just in Time…
a little help with timely prepositions
On a date or day of the week,
at a specific time;
in the month of which you speak,
remember this little rhyme!
Use at with dawn and with night,
midday, noon and sunset.
In the morning and evening’s right;
Afternoon? You bet!
