Tips for Teaching English
When teaching English as a second language, teachers have found that students often have a difficult time remembering which preposition – "at", "on" or "in" – to use with "hours", "days", "months", "years", etc. The ATONIN Time Pyramid is a teaching tool that was created to assist teachers with helping students find an easier and fun way to remember the rules of English phrasing.
An easy way to remember which preposition to use with hours, days, weeks, months, years, decades, ages.
Do you have a difficult time remembering which preposition to use with hours, days, months, years, etc?
Imagine a pyramid divided horizontally into 3 groups.
|At the top of the pyramid you have “AT” and this is used for the smallest in time: hours
|In the middle of the pyramid you have “ON” and this is used for bigger time: days
|At the bottom you have “IN” and this is used for everything else that is bigger than hours or days
