This unit teaches 11 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:
Little strokes fell great oaks
Money is the root of all evil
Necessity is the mother of invention
It's never over till it's over
Nose out of joint
Nothing will come of nothing
Once bitten, twice shy
Pot calling the kettle black
Procrastination is the thief of time
The proof of the pudding is in the eating
