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:
The road to hell is paved with good intentions
Rome wasn't built in a day
Rule of thumb
A stitch in time saves nine
Strike while the iron is hot
Tempest in a teapot
There's more than one way to skin a cat
