Figurative language, idioms, literal and non-literal word meanings
This product aligns with L.3.5a and L.4.5b. It contains four worksheets with multiple choice questions.
Students read each sentence, look at the underlined phrase, and choose what it means from the four possible responses.
There are five sentences on each page. Each has the same instructions: Read each sentence. Think about what it means. Choose the answer that most clearly tells what the underlined words mean.
There is an Extra Time activity for early finishers. The answers are on the last page. Please see the preview for a sample from these pages.
