Idioms, while very difficult for ELLs, are also a lot of fun. Personally I’ve always thought idioms should frustrate and annoy ELLs, but my students always seem to love learning them and beg for more. Since Amelia Bedelia is so literal she provides the perfect idiom practice opportunity for my students. They always shake with laughter and spend hours reading about her and looking at the pictures when I introduce them to her. I made these poster templates for the students to illustrate some of the idioms that Amelia had so much trouble with in the book. The students always have a lot of fun drawing their own version of the book’s illustrations and then drawing the correct picture. They’re also a big hit when we hang them in the hall and their parents come to school. The parents always spend a lot of time looking at the posters and you can see many of them pain-fully sounding out each word as they try to understand the strange drawings. It’s a lot of fun watching the smiles spread across their faces and hearing them chuckle as they figure out the English and what their children have done.
