Idiom of the Week

Idioms are figurative expressions that mean something other than what they sound like.  Some of our third graders will be learning idioms in speech-language therapy this year.  I will be posting an Idiom of the Week at the beginning of each week.  The Idiom of the Week for September 12th is:

It's raining cats and dogs.
It really means: It's raining really hard.
