Spring Fun with Words includes 3 PRINTABLES with ANSWER KEYS.
In the first PRINTABLE “Spring Fun Grammar Review with Idioms” students will discover the hidden idiom by identifying different parts of speech (i.e. adverbs, conjunctions, adjectives, comparative adjectives, subject pronouns, past tense verbs and separable phrasal verbs etc.) After identifying the words according to their parts of speech, they will then follow the directions and color them accordingly. If students don’t have crayons or colored pencils they can cross out the words instead. The blocks that remain will reveal the idiom “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket”. Finally, they need to write a sentence using the idiom correctly.
In the second PRINTABLE, “Be a Word Eggs-pert” students will be given a clue to discover a word that begins with the prefix EX. Teachers can use this exercise to teach about prefixes or to work on pronunciation in an ESL classroom.
The third PRINTABLE “Scrambled Egg-Words” is a fun exercise that continues with the same vocabulary words found in the second printable. (i.e. exactly, expert, excursion, exaggerate, explode etc.) Students will see how quickly they can unscramble the words. Once again all the words begin with the prefix EX.
