Why Idioms?

An idiom is an expression that cannot be understood from the meanings of its separate words but that has a separate meaning of its own. ~ Merriam Webster


Understanding the meanings of idioms helps readers understand more of what they are reading. Students need exposure to idioms and their meanings. Images help students remember and understand the idioms since they are often phrases with very different meanings.
