Product Description
Idioms are rough! Especially for out English Language Learners. This game is designed to help middle grade years students become more familiar with the most common 40 idioms.

1. Put students in pairs or small teams
2. Have them fill in the blanks on the game sheet to help them figure out what the idioms are.
3. See who finished first, and who gets the most idioms right.

Example: B__ is in y__ c__
Clue: It is up to you to make the next decision or step
Answer: Ball is in your court

Some idioms are more strongly scaffolded than others, so ALL students will be able to play. I will be using this AFTER finals for enrichment. I have an Idiom Dictionary on hand, as this helps.
