Transcript of Idiom lesson Grade 2

Let's Talk About Idioms
What is an idiom?
You will now listen to a story full of idioms.

As you listen to the story called, More Parts by Tedd Arnold, see if you can come up with your own definition of the word "idiom".

Try to remember as many of the idioms as you can from the story.
How would you describe the word "idiom"?
What were some of the idioms you remember from the story?
What did they mean?
Let's Brainstorm Some More Idioms...
What do you know about the phrase:
"It's raining cats and dogs!"
What do you know about the phrase:
"He was saved by the bell!"
Think about what you already know about these words and why you were able to interpret the phrases differently from the actual words used.
When do you hear idioms?
Have you heard anyone in your family use idioms when speaking?
Which idioms do you use?
Have you heard idioms used in television programs or movies?
Some idioms are passed down from generation to generation.
More Parts
by Tedd Arnold
Raise your hand every time you hear an idiom as the teacher reads the story aloud.
An idiom is a word or phrase which means something different from what it says.
How was each idiom used and how did you figure out what it meant?
Select your favorite idiom to illustrate.
Draw a picture of the literal interpretation of the phrase.
Write your idiom on the back of the paper.
Once everyone is done, students will present their drawings while the rest of the class attempts to guess the idiom.
Remember these examples from the book?

"It broke my heart."
"Give me a hand."
"This joke will crack you up."
"Let's stretch our arms and legs before we go out and play."
"Hold your tongue."
"My baby sister screams her lungs out every night."
How did the main character of the story interpret each idiom?
Carnival games of skill, particularly shooting games, once gave out cigars as a prize. A contestant that did not quite hit the target was close, but did not get a cigar.
"That throw was close, but no cigar."
