Kayla brainstormed possible uses for this preposition and then created a sentence consisting of three acronyms – a word (“red”), a phrase (“touch down”), and a group of letters (“pgc”). “Red touch down pgc” is what Kayla says to remember 8 uses of para

Below is a diagram Kayla learned from one of her previous teachers.  In it, there is a circle and two arrows.  The top arrow represents para and stops at the beginning of the circle, signifying a specific destination or purpose.  The bottom arrow represents por and signifies "through" because it goes all the way through the circle.
