What a fun way to learn about idioms! This activity will have students actively thinking about the colorful, descriptive world of idioms. 30 game boards are included to allow for either small group or whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. Because idioms can be confusing, unlike most of my vocabulary bingo games, each card has all the terms on the cards. Students can look over the phrases and think about which one relates to the idiom given, without having to consider that their card may not have every expression. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential. The terms included in this set are: a chip off the old block, a dime a dozen, a taste of your own medicine, add fuel to the fire, all bark and no bite, barking up the wrong tree, beggars can’t be choosers, butterflies in my stomach, button your lips, come out of your shell, cross that bridge when you come to it, fit as a fiddle, full of hot air, get off on the wrong foot, get your feet wet, to go to bat for someone, hit the books, hit the nail on the head, on the same page, on the tip of your tongue, one-man band, playing it by ear, a slap on the wrist, sticks out like a sore thumb and tickled pink.
