Idioms: Dog Tired and All Tuckered Out, But I Have a Freebie for You!

It is only Monday and I feel this way? Yikes! Spring Break is next week and I am hanging on by a thread! I even have tomorrow off (doctor appointment) and I am still tired! Sheesh!

Don't forget about the Georgia Blogger Meet Up that will be next week on Wednesday, April 4th! So far I have heard from 2 people! As soon as I get the energy up, I will be leaving some messages on blogs of other Georgia bloggers to get the word out! Everyone is welcome- bloggers and blog readers! If you would like to join us, please email me at mandyholland@hotmail.com.


I have just finished with my latest product, Sweet As Pie: An Idiom Supplemental Unit. It is a favorite of mine! Here is a description of the unit:

Several different activities are included in these zipped files. These files include:

·       Four days of sample lesson plans


·       Idioms Concentration allows students to match idioms to their meanings.  The idiom cards have a small apple on them and the meaning cards have a small pencil on them so students can easily match meanings and idioms.  This game can be played with all of the cards, or in small chunks as 4-5 different idioms are introduced.

·       A Power Point presentation introducing each idiom and meaning in small chunks with a check for student understanding.

·       Idioms Bingo in which students mark the idiom when given the meaning.

·       A Power Point Presentation to be used to randomly call idioms for Bingo

·       Idioms Dictionary created by students.  Students will illustrate the literal and figurative meaning of the idioms, as well as define both and use the idiom in a sentence.

·       A suggested book list for teaching

As a freebie, I am including a Power Point Presentation that includes four idioms, their meanings, and a Check for Understanding slide that allows students to match the idiom and the meaning.

  3. Oh, darn! I think I'm too late for the freebie :) This unit looks super.....I may have to break down and buy this from TpT. I'm always looking for new ways to teach figurative language. Thanks for sharing!
