    I use the Amelia Bedelia books by Peggy Parish for a study on idioms. I read the first book aloud to my class. We discuss what idioms are and pick them out of the story. Then I break them up into small groups and give each another Amelia Bedelia book to read with their group. (there are tons!) They pick out idioms in that book as well. We come back as a big group and discuss. For the next couple of days I let each group rotate the books. Then each child comes up with an idiom and writes it and illustrates it (it's literal meaning). They are really cute and I display them with under a title (using an idiom ofcourse).
