Cliche: Understanding Common Expressions


Item #L4

Using context clues to uncover the meanings of cliches

Students independently discover the meaning of 28 common expressions found in many classic books, such as "mum's the word" or "on the up and up". First the students try to match meanings with expressions, then check their work by placing the expressions into sentences in which the meanings are clear. This work is most appropriate for 3rd grade students with a good reading vocabulary.

Included in the set are:

  • 28 expression cards in 4 distinct sets

  • 4 sentence expressions cards with 7 sentences each

  • an answer key for teacher use or self-checking
