  1. Animal Idioms
    The colorful pictures and vast selection of idioms keeps my students interested in learning the true meaning of each idiom. They loved using the secret decoder to verify if they chose the correct answer. This game activity held the interest of many of my students regardless of their grade or age. I would highly recommend this activity to teach idioms to your students.

  3. Perfect for ELD students
    Because our English Language Learners [ELL] do not grow up with these common idioms this deck is perfect for familiarizing the students with the concept of idioms and with many we use every day. The cards are big, colorful and attractive. Projecting them or using for a small group are equally effective. The deck makes easy a tricky use of language.

    I've been using these for the last couple of weeks with upper elementary aged children on the autism spectrum (fairly high functioning). They absolutely LOVE the pictures, and they really, really ADORE the "decoder" -- definitely worth every penny. Instead of not wanting to work on idioms, my clients are asking for the animal-light game!

    I really liked using the Animal Idioms with my group of 5-8 grade students. These are idioms that they seemed more familiar with and it was easier for them to describe and generate the idiom. The students had fun using the little flashlight and quizzing each other while learning throughout the proces.

    These cards make teaching idioms so much fun. The pictures are great and keep the student's attention. Also, the decoder is another attenion keeper which adds to the suspense of whether the student made the corrrect choice.

    Animal Idioms is a very nicely illustrated set of cards which I find very appealing. It is a very full deck of cards which include many, many animal idioms, thus giving the students a wide array of opportunities for learning idioms.

  12. Animal Idioms
    The animal idioms card set is a fun and easy way to target figurative language skills for children who tend to comprehend language in a literal sense and students who need extra practice with abstract langauge concepts. They love using the decoder to find out if their answers are correct and the idioms and example sentences provide a great model for them to then create their own sentences for practice. Very pleased with this purchase!
