Idiom Posters




One of my favorite things about teaching writing is teaching idioms. These posters are colorful and self explanatory. You could display one poster at a time as introduced to your students or have all 20 posters displayed on a bulletin board. I have mine displayed all at once. My students love them! I offer tickets to my students if they find these idioms in text or use them in their writing. {They're always eager to earn tickets!} Students could also write new sentences using these idioms on a post-it note to place next to the idiom used. {I will find any way possible to use post-its in my classroom!}

  2. To this day I remember learning Idioms in your class, and most everything else, you're a wonderful teacher and this blog suits you well. I very much enjoy reading it, I almost went for and English Degree for Teaching, but decided against it. Though i still intend to get a teaching degree, it will be for college level, my school has a wonderful masters program i'm hoping to get into after i finish my first four years.
