This Idiom of the Week template is used towards the end of the week as a bell ringer/morning work after introducing and discussing the weekly idiom Monday through Thursday. I purchased the Idiom of the Week pocket chart through Really Good Stuff's website. The students thoroughly enjoyed learning the idioms and their meanings, and as a result, their writing samples were so much more creative. This item could also be used in a writing station.
My students thoroughly enjoyed creating these and their parents REALLY got a kick out of them!
