FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON - “February Idioms from the Heart”

by Margaret Whisnant
5th - 8th Grade


February Idioms from the Heart is a combination history and figurative language lesson.

Each of the forty original sentences, organized as two separate activities of twenty items each, are constructed around an idiom with the word heart in it. Students are challenged to interpret the hidden meaning in each one. The preliminary Student Page briefly explains the history behind our language's large collection of idiomatic expressions that erroneously attribute human emotions and personality traits to the heart.

Download this free item and treat your students to something a little different this Valentine's Day.

This freebie has a companion for-purchase product:
February Figuratively Speaking

FREE SOCIAL STUDIES LESSON - “FREE Handwriting Practice with Social Studies Passages CURSIVE”

by Teaching is a Work of Art
2nd - 4th Grade



This is sample from my HANDWRITING AND SOCIAL STUDIES packet which provides cursive handwriting practice together with reading comprehension in a contextualized and meaningful way. Instead of practicing writing letters and words in isolation, this packet helps students review Social Studies content while improving their handwriting skills.
This freebe includes two pages of cursive practice on the topic of U.S. PRESIDENTS. Students read and trace the informational passage first and are then required to complete sentences, do matching exercises, label pictures, draw, etc. using words presented in the passages.
Once students learn what they are expected to do, this can make a great center.
This is a sample of my HANDWRITING AND SOCIAL STUDIES resource.
