I absolutely love teaching my students about idioms! It gives us an opportunity to laugh, be creative, and have some more fun in the classroom.
With this download, your students will be able to create their very own Tab-book focusing on 14 commonly used idioms. They will begin each page by drawing a picture of what the idiom on the tab "sounds like". (It's hysterical to see some of the illustrations your kiddos will come up with... trust me on this one!) Then after discussing the true meaning, students will record what the idiom means and draw an illustration depicting what it "really means". Afterwards, students will write a sentence about their illustration that uses the idiom correctly. You will be amazed at how much fun you'll have with this activity and how quickly your students begin to learn them.
