Use Drawings to Teach Idioms

Idioms are figures of speech that mean something other than the literal interpretation of the words. For example, the idiom "see eye to eye" means to agree with another person. Share these examples with your child, and see how many more you can come up with together. Choose a few of your favorites and draw pictures of their literal and intended meanings.
