Page 1-3: Title pages and information
Page 4-53: Color Posters of each idiom
Page 54-103: Black and White Posters of each idiom
Page 104: Worksheet

Each idiom has their own poster with a picture illustrating the literal meaning of the idiom, the actual definition, and sentences using the idiom.

A worksheet is included for your students to write out the idiom for that week, write their definition, their own sentences, and draw a picture. Print out enough for all of your students to have a copy and hang them around your “idiom of the week” poster. Then you can combine each student’s pages into a book at the end of the year.
