Help students learn how to understand figurative language (idioms) with these engaging task cards! As a supplement to the Journeys ELA curriculum for 2nd grade, these cards cover the vocabulary skill in Unit 3, Lesson 12. However, they can also be used independently of that curriculum.

The cards can be used for a variety of fun activities including scoot, classroom/hallway hunts or center activities. Just print the cards on card stock, laminate and cut, and you are ready to go! The direction sheet provides a mini-lesson on the skill and can be printed for students to refer to during the activity.

This download includes:

• instructions for activities
• direction sheet for mini-lesson
• 24 task cards
• answer key
• answer sheet

I have also created task cards for the vocabulary skills covered in Journeys Unit 1 and Unit 2 for second grade, and the grammar skills covered in Unit 1 and Unit 2. Cards can be purchased for each individual story or in a bundle for each unit.

Please let me know what you think of the cards! I hope your students enjoy using them!
