Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.
Idioms, Adages, and Proverbs covered are:
Food for thought
Ring a bell
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder
Have eyes in the back of one's head
If the shoe fits, wear it
High and dry
Joined at the hip
Don't look a gift horse in the mouth
At a crossroads
Cut to the chase
don't your i's and cross your t's
Burn one's bridges
Where there's smoke, there's fire
The silver screen
All that glitters is not gold
On the tip of one's tongue
Beat around the bush
Cross that bridge when you come to it
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
As the crow flies
A watched pot never boils
Walking on air
There's no use crying over spilled milk
Burn the candle at both ends
When it rains, it pours
A fantastic way to use task cards is by playing Scoot!
SCOOT is an easy, fun, fast paced game that will get the kids up and moving around.
Place a task card on each desk in numerical order. Each student will read the sentence and will write down the correct answer on their sheet. Then after a minute or two, say "SCOOT!" and the students will SCOOT over to the next seat and get started on the next question straight away.
Scoot Tips and directions are included.
28 task cards.
Numbers for desks (optional)
BONUS! 6 Brain Breaks/Teasers are included too!
You can also laminate the cards and have students write their answers directly on the cards with dry erase markers or they can use the included student recording sheets. Two styles of answer sheets for each set are included for self-checking if desired.
