Teachers like you said…

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This was a very complete and thorough product. My school uses the McGraw Hill Wonders curriculum, and it does not do a good job of explaining what proverbs and adages are. Your product was exactly what I needed to supplement their curriculum. It truly helped my students understand. – The 5th Grade Renegade

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This was a fun and VERY HELPFUL way to supplement my textbook! The kids' interest was piqued, and they wanted to know more about ALL idioms and adages! As school went virtual, I easily adapted the lessons to digital activities with Google Slides, and I know their writing gained a better sense of description and some humor as well! - Darilyn D.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My students enjoyed this resource as a part of a week-long lesson. They were able to understand the material easily without me having to over-explain it. Students enjoyed the sayings and were even able to bring a few up later on in the school year. The material was written with kids and their daily lives in mind. This is a great resource to use as a whole group activity, partner work, and even independent work for those kiddos who love to go out on their own! - Kaitlynn P.
