Identifying Idioms and Their Meanings - Worksheet

PDF | 2 pages|Grades: 2 - 5

A worksheet to practice identifying idioms and their meaning.

Use this resource when teaching students about idioms.

Students will read through a series of texts, underline the idiom in each one, and use context clues or prior knowledge to determine their meaning.

This resource can be used as independent practice in a reading center, or project the resource on the whiteboard and complete it together while teaching the skill.

Due to the nature of the questions, no answer key has been included in this resource.

This resource was created by Jennifer Hall, a teacher in North Carolina and Teach Starter Collaborator.
