This is a great set of flashcards to use with children who are learning to use/understand figurative language, specifically idioms. There are 32 sets (64 cards) of very common idioms. One card of the pair includes the idiom and a picture depicting the literal meaning. The matching card has the meaning of the idiom and a picture to illustrate the actual meaning.
My kiddos love to play matching, memory, etc. with these cards! I also require my kids to use the idiom appropriately in a sentence after they match the card to increase their level of understanding. The pictures often assist the students in creating additional sentences.
Additionally, this activity has been a great tool for my students who speak English as a second language.
