This file received a makeover December 2014! I have made a few changes to make this file useful at any time of year. I've added larger posters, your choice of illustration printables, and an idiom journal. Be sure to re-download!

Nonliteral meanings, or idioms, have been a difficult concept for my students to grasp, especially my English Language Learners. Idioms and literal/nonliteral meanings are an important part of the Common Core State Standards in many subjects and grade levels. I created this file to give my students an engaging way to experience idioms and practice interpreting their meanings using context clues in a fun, festive way!

Students will also have many opportunities for practicing their speaking skills while working in cooperative groups and presenting their idioms to the class.

Included in this file:
Teaching Posters
Idiom Center Cards and Optional Game Boards (20 Question Cards and 20 Answer/Meaning Cards)
Illustrate Your Idiom {A different version of the Tea Party Reading Strategy} (15 Sentence Cards and 15 Meaning Cards for a Class of 30, plus blank sheets to make your own sentences/meanings, and Idiom Illustration Printables)
Idiom Journal for Recording Literal and Nonliteral Meanings
