Idioms, Idioms, Idioms!!! These illustrated idioms are perfect for speech therapy for language arts. They give students the chance to demonstrate whether or not they receptively understand what idioms really mean because there are 2 picture choices for each idiom.
Help your students figure out what the real meaning of an idiom is. There are 24 total idioms, which makes 48 picture choices, one with the real meaning, and one with the figure of speech (see pictures for example). Also comes with an answer board that can be placed over the pictures to help the student visualize the right answer.
To make the little answer boards, cut out the middle first, and then laminate so that it is sturdy but the middle is clear.
Could be used in a language class or in a speech therapy class. The images could work great for kids with autism, or in special education class.
Some of the images could be seen as offensive, just make sure to look over each image before deciding who to teach it to. (ex: someone has a nail on their head due to the idiom "hit the nail on the head")
Let me know if you have any questions about these idioms!
