Idioms can be so difficult for students to comprehend, yet they are so important to add voice in writing and comprehending the writing and speech of others. Help your students by making idioms an everyday part of instruction.
This PowerPoint has 186 slides each containing a different idiom. Each idiom is used in a sentence. There is a literal picture of each idiom as well as a definition.
Included is a Frayer type model so students can record the idioms and make it their own. The chart is in several different sizes and orientations to fit your needs.
Another chart is included so students can record idioms they find in the literature they read. The chart also comes in numerous sizes and orientations.
These activities really helped my ELL students as well as those who did not have many language opportunities.
