Transcript of Idioms

Figurative Language: Idioms
Idioms are everywhere!
What is an idiom?
An idiom is a group of words that have a figurative meaning. In other words, it means something other than what it actually says. Let's do an example together:

Small Group Discussions

I thought...

I'm thinking...

I noticed...

I have butterflies in my stomach!" I told her, "Take a deep breath and just relax. We have been practicing all week and everything will be fine."
Time to break into groups!
Group 1 is going to be playing a concentration game using idioms! Follow the directions inside the folder when you get to that center.
Group 2 is going to choose and interpret an idiom of their choice and visually draw the literal meaning of that idiom. Follow the directions once you get to that center.

I feel confident about what I learned today and could teach it to a student who was absent today.
I feel okay about what I learned today and understand it fairly well.
I feel that I need a little extra help with what we learned today and need some additional assistance.
Literal vs. Figurative
