Help students use context clues to figure out what is really intended when idioms are used with the use of funny pictures in this 11 slide Powerpoint. (7 examples with pictures, and 4 without). *Check out the FREE corresponding Idiom Assement/Review sheet on my page.
I display this on the Smartboard, and allow students to take turns coming up to answer. Feel free to continue adding more slides with funny pics and sentences to get your students thinking about figurative language!
