We are learning about idioms!!!


Idioms for kids are word combinations that kids use which have a different meaning than the literal meanings of each word.


Idioms that we found around the school or from teachers:
Your a pain in the neck!! (you are being annoying)

 pull your socks up (get your act together)

pain in the but (you are being annoying again)

brain fart (awesome ideas popped up in your mind)

get your head out of the clouds (stop thinking and living in the past)

that will cost a arm and a leg! (that is expensive)

break a leg (have a go!)

you cant lead a horse to water but you can make it thirsty (you cant do all the work for people but you can help/encourage them and they will try)

hot blades on thin ice (somethings gonna go wrong shortly)

pigs will fly it aint gonna happen)

hot potato (passing a hard subject that you dont wot to talk about on to someone else)

a pot calling a kettle black (being a hypocrite)

  1. What a wonderful selection of idioms Maria. Loved going through and reading them. When you get a moment pop back in and edit the spelling and punctuation. Keep up the good work!
