Barker Creek Idioms Activity Book
Here's another of those important parts of speech that, for many of us, is hard to define. Once your students have studied the 20 memorable idioms in this book, they will remember that, while "a picture is worth a thousand words," a well-placed idiom can accomplish almost the same task in a thoughtfully crafted sentence. Reading comprehension and fluency are enhanced when children know the parts of speech. Our Idioms book is loaded with activities and ideas designed to add FUN into learning. Each page is divided into five sections -- "Create a blueprint!" (Draw it!), "Plug it in!" (Think about it!), "Build a book!" (Create it!), "Saw through it!" (Read it!), "In the spotlight!" (Highlight it!), and "Set it in concrete" (Write it!). This unit is complete with a review test, extension ideas, reproducible pictures to supplement the lessons and a blank template for creating your own activity sheets. One of nine titles in our top-selling Reading FUNdamentals book and chart set series. 48 reproducible activity pages.
