Teaching which preposition follows after which adjective. This one worked really well with my Ss when they had problems memorizing the right prepositions after adjectives. I wrote some little memo "poems" for adjective+preposition pairs, where the nouns start with the same two or three letters as the preposition before them, e.g.: "fond OF OFfstage meetings with singers," "impressed WITH the WIndsor Castle," "new TO TOm," "aware OF my OFten annoying snoring," etc. Through combining an adjective with a "story" full of alliterations, plus a picture, these little memos will help your Ss memorize which preposition comes after which adjective.
