Fun With Idioms

This is what I do with my children in school....
All the pupils in my English class need to prepare MYBOOK ( a small book that they can put anythings about "ENGLISH " inside. They can bring this little book anytime, anywhere & always share to their friends. One of the topic in MYBOOK is IDIOMS". They need to find any idiom with colourful picture from internet, print it out and paste in the book. It's good to let your children learn idioms, they can use idioms  during exam to score higher marks. These are some example of idioms provide from my little children in my class. Hope as your reference.

An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not compositional — that is, whose meaning does not follow from the meaning of the individual words of which it is composed. For example, the English phrase "to kick the bucket" means "to die". A listener knowing the meaning of kick and bucket will not necessarily be able to predict that the expression can mean to die. Idioms are often, though perhaps not universally, classified as figures of speech.

This idiom is a way of wishing someone good luck.

 The notion that to be fit and healthy you need to eat good food.

 A gesture of celebration in which two people slap palms with the hands held above above the head. 

 To lament uselessly or pointlessly.

  To make a rude or obscene gesture (at somebody)

saved by the timely intervention of someone or something. 

 to detect that something is amiss.
