Reflection: Checks for Understanding Idioms are Easy as Pie! - Section 4: Idioms Match-Up - Individual Activity


I didn't realize how great of a tool this would be to see who was still struggling.  Students either zipped right through this activity with all correct answers, or they didn't understand idioms at all. I took the opportunity of pulling the kids who were struggling, back to the back table where I did some reteaching and worked through the activity together.  The rest of the students played another round of go fish when they finished.
