This is part of my bundled unit on Idioms, Adages, and Proverbs perfect for meeting the Common Core Standards: ELA L.4.5b and L.5.5.b: Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.
This product includes:
An original engaging story with examples of idioms, proverbs, and adages. This is a differentiated activity and can be done as a whole group or independently. Students will read the story and underline the idioms, proverbs, and adages they find. Then they will record their answers on the recording sheet and provide a definition for each. There is an option for differentiated instruction in which the student is provided with some of the idioms, proverbs, adages, or definitions and they must complete the graphic organizer. The third option is a cut/paste to match the idioms, proverbs, and adages with the definition. An answer key is provided.
This unit will produce results in teaching students about idioms, proverbs and adages in a fun and engaging way. It is perfect for differentiated instruction, centers, and special education students!
