Idioms and Puns

Idioms and Puns

Author: Jared Speight

CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.7.4 Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of rhymes and other repetitions of sounds (e.g., alliteration) on a specific verse or stanza of a poem or section of a story or drama.

I can determine the meaning of puns and idioms as used within a sentence.

For this flipped lesson, students will learn about puns and idioms at home and see two examples for each.  When class begins the next day, the teacher will review using the first slide for each category and then allow the students to continue practicing their skill as an individual or in small groups.
