Free Friday: Vocabulary Lesson

As if I don’t have enough on my plate as it is, I’ve decided to re-introduce a weekly component of the blog and add “Free Friday,” in which I will be uploading some free lessons. I already post learning resources and opportunities as it is; however, this has a fun name!

First, did you notice my idiom related to food in the first sentence? “to have enough on my plate” is an idiom that means, I already have a lot going on, or I am already pretty busy. You will change the pronoun “my” to reflect the correct person (his, her, their, our, etc), and you can replace ‘enough’ with other words like: a lot, so much, etc…  OR, you can use it the opposite way and say, “I don’t have a lot on my plate.” This would mean you’re not busy at all!

This week includes a vocabulary lesson, and if you haven’t guessed already, it’s related to FOOD. You can check out my other food related information [more idioms] here.

Review vocabulary words, match their synonyms, and complete the sentence blanks with their appropriate word. You can even go one step farther, and create your own sentences in the comment section for me to review and check! Click the link below to review the lesson, and be sure to practice your writing, by writing them in a notebook:
