Note: This card uses two idioms. An idiom is an expression or phrase whose meaning cannot be deduced from the literal definitions, but refers instead to a figurative meaning that is known only through common use: "No bones about it" - no doubt, and "Top Dog" - the best. Also the "Big Cheese" card and the "Apple of my eye" card below, use idioms. You can use these cards to introduce idioms to your children.

You lift me up when I am down.
You take time to listen to me,
Even when I don't have anything to say.
You teach me new things.
You make me feel special.
You carry me when I can't carry myself.
You let me help even when I'm not very helpful.

This card is available in color or in black and white.

Print out the Pattern and glue it to a piece of construction paper. (Available to members only.)
