If you're looking for a fun way to introduce idioms to your students, pick up a copy of this book and check out the discussion guide. We do a similar activity on Valentine's Day with heart idioms and it's tons of fun.
Activity Name: Soccer Ball Idioms
Activity Description: Inside the discussion guide below, there is a list of idioms. Have students cut out a soccer ball from construction paper. On the front of the soccer ball, each student can write one of the idioms listed in the discussion guide. On the back side of the soccer ball, each student can use the idiom correctly in a sentence.
Whether it be for one specific student, a small group of kids, or a whole class, finding a "just right" book makes the teacher's and the students' day.
