Product Description
Do you have a hard time teaching students literal vs. non-literal language? I know my students have a difficult time figuring out what phrases like, "It's raining cats and dogs!" means when they don't see it in a context.

To help my students and yours, I have included:
-3 winter-themed passages (Super Bowl, Valentine's Day, and 100th Day of School) with non-literal language for students to use their context clues to figure out the meanings of the idioms
-1 passage (Groundhog's Day) in which they determine how many idioms are in the story and illustrate the literal vs. non-literal meaning of one of those idioms
-a generic worksheet for them to use the "Idiom of the Day" of your choice in a sentence and illustrate the literal vs. non-literal meaning
