Idioms

My idioms center is always a big hit.

I have 20 or so idioms on cards.

First, students draw a picture of what it would look like if the idiom were taken literally.

Then, they write what the idiom really means.

Finally, they write a sentence using the idiom correctly.

It is easy to set up, beginning with just a few idioms, and easy to add to.

It's a little silly and really helps children see that we use language figuratively every day.

I absolutely love this idea! It sounds just like the number game I made up! I took fish bowls with the numbers zero through ten and hung them on the wall. I then numbered fish. I would take the fish and put them on the floor upside down, and with a magnetic fishing polls have the kids pick the fish up and place them in the right bowl. I love games children can play and learn at the same time!
