Idioms are all over the place and can be confusing for students that have not been exposed to them. If you've used my figurative language pack, then your students should remember Iggy Idiom!
With this product you can easily teach idioms to your students all year long.
This download includes 40 popular idiom posters to display in your classroom one week at a time.
It also includes mini cards of the idioms that can be used at a center. After each of the mini cards is an idiom worksheet that has examples of the 4 previous idioms. Students should read the 4 examples and choose from the 4 idiom cards at the center. Cut the cards out to allow students to move them around and compare idioms. Use more than 4 at a time if you’d like.
There is also a worksheet included for students to show what they know about the idiom. I would use it at the end of the week after students have been exposed to the idiom and heard it used in a variety of ways.
Encourage your students to use the idiom of the week in class, at home, and to look out for them when they read stories.
