Have you ever spoken an idiom in front of a class and been treated to 30-something blank stares?
Idioms are a dime a dozen. If you don't know them, then most of the sentences you hear will be all Greek to you! Most curricula don't include a unit exclusively for idioms, and constructing your own unit might be biting off more than you can chew. Well, here's the silver lining: this Idioms Game will be your ace in the hole! Assemble these cards according to the instructions included in the document, and it's in the bag!
This game gets kids out of their seats and moving around the room, and saying such silly things to each other that they won't even notice that they're learning idioms!
So it's time to bite the bullet and download this game. If you're still on the fence about it, remember that it includes a complete list of 99 common American idioms with definitions, and it pairs well with the other Idioms Activities in my shop.
The ball is in your court. You can reveal the meanings of all those phrases your kids have heard but not understood, equipping them to function in American adult society, and it doesn't even cost an arm and a leg!
