Do you 'see red' when people use phrases you don't understand. Or maybe get 'cold feet' because you are feeling 'under the weather'? For those on the autism spectrum or when English isn't their first language, these every day phrases are completely baffling. These sets of cards humorously depict well known idioms and the accompanying detailed booklet provides a dictionary meaning for each card, and a range of ideas and activities for use.
Favourite Idioms contains 36 cards per pack and an accompanying booklet. It is suitable for all ages.
