This unit teaches 10 different sayings, phrases, and idioms to accompany the 5th grade ELA curriculum. Each page lists a saying/phrase, space for definitions, illustrations, and use in context. There is enough margin space on the left side of each page to allow for 3-hole punching. This product would fit nicely in a binder or a folder with prongs to use and refer back to all year long.
Within this product is also a crossword puzzle with answer key, a list of meanings, as well as a center activity. While these were made for 5th grade, they could be used in both 4th and 6th grade ELA.
The sayings, phrases, and idioms in this unit are:
The grass is always greener on the other side
To kill two birds with one stone
Lock, stock, and barrel
Make a mountain out of a molehill
A miss is as good as a mile
It's never too late to mend
Out of the frying pan and into the fire
A penny saved is a penny earned
Read between the lines
Sit on the fence
