Two worksheets that align with L.4.5.b
Worksheet 1: Idioms
8 items. Directions: Read each sentence or group of sentences. Find the idiom and underline it. Think about what it means. Rewrite just that sentence, changing the idiom to your own words that mean the same thing. The first one is done for you.
#9 asks students to describe what an idiom is to someone who has never heard the word.
Worksheet 2: Proverbs and Adages
9 items. Directions: Read each sentence. Look at the word box of phrases. Find the one that best fits the sentence you just read. Write it on the line under the sentence.
#10 asks students to describe what a proverb/adage is to someone who has never heard of one.
Both worksheets are two pages and each has an Extra Time activity for early finishers.
Answer key is the last page.
