Idioms! Idioms! Idioms! and free Halloween tags

It's time to teach idioms again this year. I really enjoy using and teaching new idioms to my students, but it sure is a hard concept to learn! Year after year, my EL students tend to think the phrase literally means what it says.  But with practice and re-teaching, it’ll soon become quite fun for them.  I wanted to show you what I’m using in the classroom this year.  I typed up the idioms to be used as flash cards/task cards in small groups.  Students will read the idiom and try to figure out what it means before reading the real meaning on the back.  They will then draw a silly picture that matches the idiom. 

If you would like a copy for only a couple of dollars. Please visit my TPT store HEREThere are 39 idiom phrases in this pack.  There’s also a nice little worksheet that goes with the cards for students to illustrate on.  Thanks!
Now for some FREE Halloween Tags!
I was inspired by this lovely picture and thought I could do it for my students for the 31st.  So, I made some tags to go with the treat.  It looks like it'll be easy to make, but I don't know.  Fingers cross.  Click on this blog (eighteen25) to get directions on how to make this delicious sticky treat. Click on the pictures below to save and print out your free tags.  I made these tags to fit my 2 1/2 circle punch.  Thanks for reading!
