IDIOM, ADAGE, and PROVERB Task Cards Set 3 - SCOOT
Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.
Idioms, Adages, and Proverbs covered are:
Can't hold a candle to
Go back to the drawing board
Have a big mouth
Full of hot air
Carved in stone
Cost an arm and a leg
Climb the walls
Grasp at straws
When the cat's away, the mice will play
Between a rock and a hard place
Still waters run deep
Spur of the moment
Every cloud has a silver lining
Turn the tables
Strike while the iron is hot
People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones
Long in the tooth
Hit the roof
The pen is mightier than the sword
Too many cooks spoil the broth
Get under someone's skin
A fish out of water
Cream of the crop
Don't take any wooden nickels
In the doghouse
You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink
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.
