The kids and I have been talking about idioms, how they are often used in writing and what the different idioms mean. There are lots of idioms, actually a crazy amount. But I am trying to work through the common ones with my kids to make sure they know them (ie would understand what they meant if they were included in some text that they were reading) and also so that they could possibly add idioms into their own creative writing.
So as part of the “lets learn idioms” phase that we are going through I thought it would be good to create some cards (I love using a set of cards instead of a worksheet whenever I can). In my typical style they are nothing fancy – just cards where you match a well known idiom to it’s meaning.
In this batch there are 48 idioms (there are 4 sets on a page). So there are a few to practice with and I have also included a blank page at the end of the set for anyone wanting to include some of their own in.
These cards are Free to download and for anyone to use as part of their home education but please don’t repost these cards as your own, you are welcome to share a link to this post.
I hope someone else gets some use out of this set.
