Homework Help: English Grammar

Posted by MattsRiceBowl on Friday, March 4, 2011 at 12:28am.

When we talk about staying somewhere, we use the preposition "at." (I am staying at the bar).
If we talk about going somewhere, we use the preposition "to." (I am going to school).

Why are we allowed to leave those prepositions out when we talk about home?
I am going home.
I am staying home.

I got asked that question this week and was stumped. Is the answer, "just because?"
