This activity has cards pragmatic responses and figurative language.  The pragmatic response give students and setting and a situation that they may find frustrating. They are then asked how they should respond to the situation.


These also provide a good opportunity how they would like to respond and what the expected social response is.

Next, there are figurative language with a Halloween theme.  Students are given a figurative language phrase and the phrase used in a sentence. It is their job to state what the phrase means.  There is an included sheet of the phrases and their meanings.
