Idioms Activities

These Idiom Activities include the "Idioms: What Do They Really Mean?" Adapted Book 2 that focuses on understanding idioms or figurative language, and 2 set of Idioms "Flipstrips" for additional practice.

In the adapted book, students are given an idiom and are asked, "What Does It Really Mean?" The teacher or therapist reads along as students follow along and find the correct matching piece (or meaning) that goes with each page (or idiom). Students working independently can read and work through the book in literacy centers and workstations. The book includes 10 different idioms.

Sample Text:

(Page 1)

"We say what we mean and we mean what we say,
But sometimes we say things in very strange ways!
Like...
He hit the books.
And
When pigs fly....
But what do they really mean?

(Page 2)

When we say, "He's a little under the weather," does it mean that he is sitting under a rain cloud?
Of course not!
What does it really mean?"

(Students match the answer to each page)

Idioms Included In Book 2:

"She's the apple of my eye."
"He's a little under the weather."
"He got cold feet."
"He has a heart of gold."
"She's crying over spilled milk."
"He went out on a limb."
"She has her head in the clouds."
"Time flies."
"He hit the books."
"When pigs fly."

After the book has been introduced, the teacher or therapist can do the Flipstrips activities as a small group, or provide them to students to work on independently in workstations and literacy centers.
