Your upper elementary and middle school students will be actively engaged in learning about idioms and figurative language when presented with these interactive cell phones and text messages.
No Print, What’s the Message? Texting with Idioms & Figurative Language provides practice with 100 commonly used idioms and figures of speech.
This packet is a No Print, Interactive product designed for use on an iPad, tablet or computer.
Each idiom/figure of speech is presented in a text message on three cell phones. Three possible replies are also given. The student should choose the text message response that best fits the idiom/figure of speech presented. The student taps the send button for the cell phone with the response of their choice. If their text response is correct they will receive an appropriate text reply and will go to the next idiom message. If the answer is incorrect they will be directed back to the original three responses to try again.
Also incorporated into the texts are a variety of commonly used text shortcuts, i.e., LOL, ROFL, TTYL.
NOTE: The idoms/figures of speech included in this packet are the same idioms/figures of speech in our printable, What’s the Message? Practice with Idioms and Figurative Language packet. If you are looking for a different set of idioms from that packet, do not purchase this product.
