I have been working on idioms frequently with both my elementary and middle school students. After a while I tried a themed idiom unit which turned out to be very successful with my kiddos so I decided to start making some of my own. My students seem to really enjoy seeing how many different ways the terms are used and what they mean.
This set has a cat and dog theme, the download contains:
- 96 Idiom Cards & 96 Definition Cards
- 2 Matching Worksheets (Level 1 & 2)
- 2 Meaning Through Context Clues Worksheets (Level 1 & 2)
Directions: Print out card the idiom/definition cards (I recommend using card stock), laminate and cut out. These can be used to play go fish, memory, or matching. The idiom cards can also be used independently with any game of your choice.
The worksheets can be done in the therapy room to measure how many idioms the students have learned or sent home as homework.
