Third grade Rising Star instructor, Lorena Wilson, and her students had a wonderful time celebrating Amelia Bedelia and Her Idioms Day recently. Students and teacher used the lesson as an extension of a study on figurative language. Mrs. Wilson dressed as Amelia Bedelia and students dressed as the literal meaning of idioms that they learned about in class. Students then invited other classes to come into the room and play “Guess the Idiom” game. Students decorated themselves as “like the cookie crumbles,” “it’s raining cats and dogs,” “the icing on the cake,” and “fresh as a daisy.” Every student in the class had their own idiom to show and tell.

Great lesson! Great kids and SUPER GREAT teacher!
