This activity was designed for students who struggle understanding commonly used figurative language expressions. These 90 expressions are so commonly used, that people often forget how abstract they really are! Instead of spending time teaching outdated and rarely used figurative expressions (ex. “it’s raining cats and dogs”), spend time working on phrases that they will actually hear on a daily basis! Use these cards and visuals to help your students learn to use self-talk and context clues to understand these commonly used expressions!
