This huge idioms packet can be used in speech and language therapy or in the classroom to work towards any English-Language Arts goals. Idioms are a part of our everyday vocabulary, which makes it essential for students to understand them. This packet will walk them through the history behind each idiom included as well as activities to help them practice the definitions.
