“Mom, Dad, who’s a good cook?” “I’ll take the cookie!” “Mom, Dad, who’s a good teacher?”
These two phrases come from a special type of workbook known as an idiom’s workbook. An idioms workbook can be a very useful tool for parents of elementary children. The words in this particular workbook are often cute, and enjoyable to use, but they also help to introduce children to different types of words that may not necessarily be as common or as easily known to them. There are over 100 new and interesting idioms included in this particular workbook, and you can expect your child to be exposed to all of them in some way or another during their time in the classroom.
Your child may learn an unfamiliar word on the computer screen while they’re studying for a test or while they’re just going through the motions of reading. It could be a word they’ve never seen before, or it could be a word that they’ve only heard used in certain situations in which they’ve participated. In any case, they will likely find the word used in various places throughout the workbook and will be eager to learn the meaning of the word, as well as others, at the same time.
An idioms workbook is created so that you can not only learn the word, but you can teach your child how to use it, as well. In other words, you can teach your child how to read and spell words without having to worry about them breaking the law or getting in trouble with school officials if they get caught using the wrong words. The types of words that are included in this workbook are English words, proper nouns, and commonly used idioms, which may even be popular on television and in the news!
Parents of elementary students often find themselves asking “What is that common word I just wrote down?” If this happens to you, the good news is that the workbook includes a chart and worksheet that can answer those questions! You can print out one or both of these sheets, place them next to the word you’re trying to learn, and have the child write down the meaning.
Order Of Adjectives Worksheet Instructions: The first part of the worksheet (shown in the image below) is a definition of the word. Write down the word’s definitions in the row, and then use the worksheet’s definitions in the column to put the word into context. For example, if you’re learning the word “cat,” you might include the word “miniature” in the column. Then, use the “miniature” definition to place the word into the context box in the middle of the worksheet.
The second part of the worksheet instructions include another definition of the word. Again, write down the word’s definitions, and use the worksheet’s definitions in the column to place the word into context. If the word is still unclear, then list the closest English meaning to the word you know.
You can learn and create new words for your child to learn and use in everyday life. After they’ve learned the meaning of the word, you can also place the word into context, so that your child can understand the word without any question.
