My students really enjoyed the idiom activities. We started our discussion with identifying common idioms they might hear. As soon as they heard a couple idioms they took off with idioms they've heard before. Our hallway had lots of staff stopping for a look.
We finished our Kinds of Sentences chart with exclamations. Each of the tags on the chart are attached with removable double stick tape. I plan to resuse the chart again next year. My students also have a smaller version of the chart in their reader's journal.
