Reflection: Checks for Understanding What is an Idiom? - Section 3: Idiom Game


Before the game, I went through the picture cards first and we discussed the meaning of each of the idioms.  I then read the meaning cards and asked the students to come up with the idiom that goes with that meaning.  I really thought that the students would struggle when it came to doing it backward, but they did great!  They we able to come up the the idiom for EVERY meaning card in the deck.  I was very impressed!
