This is a set of 32 cards with short paragraphs containing an idiom or a colloquial phrase. On the back of each card is a question with higher-level wording; students must grasp the meaning of the embedded idioms by using context clues. Some idioms are common idioms; some are not so common.
The paragraphs contain mostly 4th and 5th grade vocabulary, but can be used for 6th as well. These cards were designed to be used as a station for pairs or individual students. Great practice for students approaching mastery of idiom comprehension.
