Illustrated Idioms


An idiom is a phrase where the words together have a meaning that is different from the dictionary definitions of the individual words. It’s almost like a code - break the code and and you know the meaning of the phrase. Idioms are often used verbally and in writing to make an expression more colorful. It’s not only important to teach the meanings of idioms but also how to use them correctly and effectively. They’re as easy as pie…or a piece of cake! This deck consists of idioms illustrated figuratively as well as providing the literal meaning supported by an illustration. Students will enjoy a variety of tasks to learn, practice, and express their learning by writing.
