Product Description:

What does it mean to badger someone? To bail out? To be born with a silver spoon in one's mouth? To get a dose of one's own medicine? We have all of these sayings in the English language, and we use them everyday, but have you ever thought about what they really mean? Don't most of them sound kind of silly? This book is great for class discussion and is divided into 9 different categories of idioms: animal, business, body, clothes, color, food, medical, money, and number. Daily Warm-Ups can be used at the very beginning of class to get students into learning mode, near the end of class to make good educational use of the transitional time, in the middle of class to shift gears between lessons, or whenever else you have unused minutes.
Category Description for Daily Warm-Ups: Common English Idioms:

What does it mean to badger someone? To be born with a silver spoon in one's mouth? To get a dose of one's own medicine? We have all of these sayings in the English language, and we use them everyday, but have you ever thought about what they really mean? These books are great for class discussion and are divided into different categories of idiom topics like animal, business, body, clothes, color, food, medical, money, and more. Each daily lesson displays an idiom, describes what it means, and then prompts a discussion about the topic or gives an activity to complete like writing about a time you saw an idiom in effect (for me I would describe how my brother is like a bull in a china shop because he leaves a path of destruction wherever he goes), matching idioms with their meanings, using an idiom in a sentence, completing common idioms, and more. The Level 1 book has more common idioms and slightly easier activities to complete while Level 2 is a tad more advanced, but both are practically the same, giving short, daily exercises or discussion prompts centered around an idiom. These are great to use at the very beginning of class to get students into learning mode, near the end of class to make good educational use of the transitional time, in the middle of class to shift gears between lessons, or whenever else you have unused minutes. 190 pgs each. ~ Rachel

I know that this product is geared towards older children but kids of all ages begin to hear idioms and ask about their meaning I read a few pages a week to my 2nd and 4th grade boys and they love it The idioms are easy to learn and remember and are lots of fun We consider this book a special treat
