Secret Code Idioms

My students had so much fun with my Secret Code Inferences, that I knew I wanted to make another activity using that format.  In the spring, my fourth and fifth grade teachers start to focus on idioms.  These are really difficult for some of my students, especially those with ASD.  They are so literal!  I made Secret Code Idioms for these students.

There are 24 different idioms targeted in this packet.  Each idiom is presented three different ways:

24 cards with the idiom listed and a secret code answer

24 cards with the idiom listed and a choice of three answers (secret code to check answer)

6 worksheets with four idioms listed and a space to write what the idiom really means.  There are also  secret code answers available on the worksheet so students can check their answers.

I hope you like these activities!  You can find Secret Code Inferences at my TpT store HEREIf you like what you see, please follow my Teachers Pay Teachers store and on Facebook
