PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Finally a functional AND fun language activity for your upper grade levels, this packet is designed for middle school and high school students.
Students who have difficulty understanding idioms, sayings or casual statements often have difficulty making friends. In addition, becoming familiar with figurative language aids in comprehension of text and developing better writing skills.

In this Valentine-themed pack, you receive:
*30 Idiom Situation Cards (Students are given a situation containing an idiom and are asked to interpret it)
*10 Idiom Bingo Cards (Students play BINGO, matching idioms to their meanings. Perfect to use in a small classroom!)
*36 Common Expression Cards (These are sayings that are common in casual situations such as “Chill,” “Bummer” or “Busted”)
*1 Relationship Expressions Worksheet (Students match relationship terms such as “Crush,” “Head Over Heels,” or “Puppy Love” with their meanings)
*3 Song Companion Activities (Students are given the lyrics to the popular songs “Ours” by Taylor Swift, “Firework” by Katy Perry and “Unwritten” by Natasha Bedingfield and complete figurative language activities using them)

I believe engaging our students on items they enjoy and are observing their peers use aids in learning the material. Perfect to use around Valentine’s Day or anytime!
Addressed in the Common Core Standards Language:5- Demonstrate understanding of figurative language, word relationships, and nuances in word meanings.
Please download the preview to see what all is included. Please note that the songs belong to the artists. Lyrics are for educational use only. Clipart created by KPM Doodles and The 3am Teacher

Have fun communicating!
