This product includes 30 idioms with full color posters, matching games, interactive notebook activities, and assessments. It would be an excellent product to use to start off the year and introduce one or two idioms a week!
The interactive notebook activities are organized so that the students have to find the similarities among them- for example, these four had to deal with being scared or nervous.
And if your kids (or you) are tired of boring matching games, check out this fun post where I shared how to liven up those games! My kids loved playing with the idiom matches that are included in my unit.
This next product is FREE and one my kids LOVE because we make a class book!
First, I show them this video (song featured in Dumbo):
Then, they each get a page that they illustrate to show “the real thing” and the punny phrase. (For example, a housefly and a house fly: they would draw the insect, but also a house with wings, flying in the clouds!)
Have fun teaching everyone!
