Do you teach adages? Amelia from Where the Wild Things Learn asked me if I could create a page on adages that matched the figurative language papers from my Interactive Reading Literature Notebooks.
Adages are mentioned in the Common Core Language standards for 4th and 5th grades:
L.4.5.B & L.5.5.B: Recognize and explain the meaning of common idioms, adages, and proverbs.
(The standard actually reads the exact same for both grades.)
I wanted to help out this brand new mama who just returned from maternity leave, so I made a page to match the rest. Here it is, just in case you teach adages as well!
Just click the photo below to download through Google Docs:
You can’t have your cake and eat it, too.
Life is short and sweet.
Get out of the kitchen if you can’t take the heat.
I also had a request for a matching page on oxymorons, but I can’t for the life of me find a song that includes oxymorons AND is not obscene. Plenty of songs with oxymorons are beyond obscene. What’s up with that?
Know of any oxymoron song lyrics?
