Product Description
A large number of my students are English Language Learners (ELLs). ELLs have a tendency to take things literally. This activity helps students learn that there are figurative meanings as well.

In this activity, students write the idiom of the week. (I have an idiom of the week on display on a bulletin board in the classroom.) Students explain what the idiom actually means and then illustrate this meaning. This enables students to create word-picture associations.

Students also explain and illustrate what the idiom doesn't mean. This is usually fun!

Print double-sided and fold so that the actual meaning of the idiom (THIS) is on the front, covering the literal meaning (NOT THAT).
