    Great resource for teaching idioms and figurative language. It has lots of different activities that appeal to a number of different age levels. It is nice to have the CD so that you have the activities on hand when you need them.

    This book was very helpful for developing inferencing skills for different functional levels. I created a jeopardy game using several of the categories. They also include a visual inferencing section, that allows children to comprehend and interpret humor in cartoons. Even my high school students enjoyed that section.

    I love this program! It is a great way to teach abstract language to elementary school aged children. It is grouped into categories so that you can choose idioms that the children will be interested in (eg Sports, Colors) . There are different activities you can use to engage the children, eg putting on a play...Love it!

    My students really like the illustrations as they are learning their idioms. What I like best about this book is the included CD so that I can quickly print off what I need, and the organization of the idioms into general classes.
