Today it is my pleasure to bring you a giveaway by Speech with Sharon, which is an Idiom of the Week.

This awesome 78 page packet contains

37 color and black and white idiom posters for the following idioms:
•Cry my eyes out
•Feeling blue
•Cry over spilled milk
•Walk on eggshells
•Open a can of worms
•Head in the clouds
•Money talks
•Time flies
•Raining cats and dogs
•Apple of my eye
•Tickled Pink
•When pigs fly
•Break a leg
•Out on a limb
•Lose my head
•Cost an arm and a leg
•Let the cat out of the bag
•Cold feet
•Cat got your tongue
•Zip your lip
•On cloud nine
•Written all over your face
•Heart of gold
•Two heads are better than one
•All ears
•Bad egg
•Bent out of shape
•Catch some z’s
•Couch potato
•Drive a lemon
•A drop in the bucket
•Eat Crow
•Hit the hay
•Holy cow
•Tie the knot
•Kill two birds with one stone
•Two peas in a pod

It also contains a worksheet on pg 78 which asks the student to:

  • Write down the idiom
  • Write down the definition
  • Write down a sentence with the idiom
  • Do an optional drawing

Each of Sharon’s idioms has its own poster with a picture illustrating the literal meaning of the idiom, the actual definition, and sentences using the idiom.  What’s really cool about this activity is after the students do enough idioms you can combine each student’s pages into a book at the end of the year. You can find this cool activity in Sharon’s TPT store or you can enter my one day giveaway for a chance to win your own copy.

    My population, deaf and hard of hearing, have alot of difficulty in this area. I would be able to use with my upper elem, MS, and HS kids.

    I’m always looking for good idiom activities. I have lots of upper elementary and middle school students with goals in this area.

    I am always needing a different way or activity to use with my patients.

    I work with ASD kids at the elementary and h.s. levels and cover idioms each year. The posters with the literal meaning, definition and example sentences would be great. I don’t have any done in that format and, it seems to me that this would be a great way to be able to present them, one at a time throughout the year, rather than a once per year unit. With so many other skills to teach, this would certainly be easy to use, without skimping!

    I love figurative language, and this would be great for my 5th grader with high-functioning autism!
