Idioms for Kids

Hello, guys and gals!
Que tal um pouco mais de idiomsHoje postei umas expressões idiomáticas bem simples, especiais para kids. Mas você pode estudá-las também, e fazer o exercício de fixação que está no fim do post.


1. A Bird In The Hand Is Worth Two In The Bush
- Having something that is certain is much better than taking a risk for more, because chances are you might lose everything.


A: "Dan has asked me to go to a party with him. What if my boyfriend finds out? I don't know if I should go."
B: "Don't go. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush."

2. A Blessing In Disguise

- Something good that isn't recognized at first.


A: "The hotel is full tonight; we will need to find a new place to stay."

4. A Dime A Dozen

A: "I'm sorry I scratched your car."
B: "Don't worry about it. It's just a drop in the bucket. That car has more scratches on it than I can count."
