This unit teaches 10 different sayings, phrases, and idioms to accompany the 6th 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 6th grade, they could be used in both 5th and 7th grade ELA.
The sayings, phrases, and idioms in this unit are:
All for one and one for all
All's well that ends well
Bee in your bonnet
The best-laid plans of mice and men oft go awry
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

Catch as catch can
Don't cut off your nose to spite your face
Don't lock the stable door after the horse is stolen
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth
