WRITING
"Did You REALLY Mean What You Said?"

Submitted by: I Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
From: SLC, Utah
Date Submitted: April 16, 2001

Learn about "idioms" through this creative activity! Have children write and illustrate books about some pretty silly sayings they often hear. Discuss what these sayings mean both literally and figuratively. Examples may include:

- "It's raining cats and dogs outside!"
- "My dad said I had my head in the clouds!"
- "I've got a frog in my throat!"
