Product Description
Help students understand the difference between an idiom's literal meaning and figurative meaning.

Directions:
I like to introduce my students to idioms by reading the book More Parts. We discuss the idioms in the book and discuss the difference between an idiom’s literal and figurative meaning.

Before using the activities in this product, I like to assess my students’ prior knowledge. This is important because I always find that there are students who have little to no exposure to idioms while others have lots of exposure.

You can use these products for whole class instruction or to differentiate lessons.

Included are:
Idioms with an example sentence, a picture of the idiom’s literal meaning, and a written explanation of the idiom’s figurative meaning. You will cut the puzzle pieces and students will sort. I find this beneficial for students who have little exposure to idioms.

Idioms with an example sentence, a written explanation of the idiom’s literal meaning, and a written explanation of the idiom’s figurative meaning. Since students often have a hard time understanding the difference between literal and figurative meanings, I have provided a written explanation of both to help students better understand the difference between the two. You will cut the puzzle pieces and students will sort.
(23 idioms)

An idiom worksheet that allows students to choose an idiom, create their own sentence using the idiom, draw a picture of the idiom’s literal, and explain the idiom's figurative meaning. I have included puzzle pieces for students to complete their work on. I find this beneficial for students who are ready to expand their thinking—they have a lot of prior knowledge about idioms.
