St Patrick's Day Idioms


St Patrick’s Day is right around the corner!  
 I love using this holiday to teach about idioms!
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/St-Patricks-Day-Idioms-2271273 
What is an idiom?
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/St-Patricks-Day-Idioms-2271273Idioms are words that don’t mean what they say!  They are usually a group of words, well known and used by native speakers of a language, that can’t be understood by the individual meaning of the words.


Why teach idioms?
Students develop a clear understanding of idioms with direct instruction, read-alouds, teacher modeling and student-centered activities.  According to readwritethink teaching idioms offers students the ability to further comprehend texts that contain metaphorical and lexical meanings beyond the basic word level.

Here is one way to teach idioms:
https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/St-Patricks-Day-Idioms-2271273 
·      When presenting idioms to students, introduce a group of 4 to 5 idioms together.   It is best to group the idioms into a category, for  example; before St. Patrick’s Day teach idioms that use green in them!
·      Always use stories or relate personal conversations to introduce each idiom in context.
·      Use an Idiom Journal to record the idiom and it’s meanings.  Don’t forget a picture.
·      Practice by offering students a student centered activity.

Now you are on your way to teaching idioms!

 

I like these idioms for green!
·      Get or give someone the green light
·      Green with envy
·      Grass is always greener on the other side
·      To be green
·      Green thumb
·      Green around the gills


Here are some fun sites for idioms!
·      My English Teacher
·      Learn English


What are some of your favorite idiom activities!  I would love to hear about them.


Happy Teaching,
