What a fun way to learn about idioms! This activity will have students actively thinking about the colorful, descriptive world of idioms. 30 game boards are included to allow for either small group or whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. Because idioms can be confusing, unlike most of my vocabulary bingo games, each card has all the terms on the cards. Students can look over the phrases and think about which one relates to the idiom given, without having to consider that their card may not have every expression. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential. The terms included in this set are: all thumbs, big shoes to fill, bite off more than you can chew, don’t cry over spilt milk, don’t rock the boat down the drain, a drop in the bucket, as easy as pie, fits like a glove, head over heels, hear a pin drop, heart of gold, I’m all ears, in a pickle, in hot water, in the same boat, don’t judge a book by its cover, keep your chin up, on the ball, on top of the world, a penny for your thoughts, see eye to eye, spill the beans, the icing on the cake and time flies.
