PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

MONSTROUS IDIOMS is a fun Halloween themed figurative language lesson on idioms. It features 6 monsters commonly used in American idiomatic expressions. Each slide has a description, an illustration, and uses the idiom in 1 or 2 sentences. This lesson works well with all levels of language from E.S.L. to gifted and high achievers. It is high interest and stimulates language. I use it in October with my 6th graders as a vehicle to teach figurative language and to encourage creative writing. It is a fail proof lesson that always stimulates class discussions and reinforces the steps to writing wonderful short stories.



This product is a Microsoft PowerPoint Show. It allows the user access the notes written for background information. It allows the presenter to: write on the slides, highlight information, and use a laser pointer while lecturing. It does not allow printing. To exit at any time press the ‘ESCAPE’ key on your keyboard.
