You know me...I love to play with words. Idioms are words, phrases, or expressions that cannot be taken literally. I thought we could use this weekend to see just how many idioms we can come up with.
Using idioms when we write makes our paper come alive with imagination. Playing with idioms makes language fun!
Our writing activity is easy. Let's start a list of idioms!
I'll go first:
I'm tickled pink!
Oh! One more thing....let's number our idioms. I have no idea why I want to do that, but it seems like a good idea!
Teachers: Help your kids listen for idioms at school. Share your own list of idioms that you have heard on TV or anywhere. Join your kids and make up new idioms. Above all, have a terrific time! Writing is fun. Language is delightful.
