Hello!!! I need some help!!!! My adult class has been learning some idioms related to body parts. These are the idioms:

Hair Idioms:

 * Let your hair down
* keep your hair on
* I m tearing my hair out

Eye Idioms:

* keep an eye on something
* to have eyes in the back of your head
* His eyes are bigger than his stomach

Legs Idioms:

Would you help me with comments using these idioms??? Thank you a lot in advance for your comments!!!! Smile

Let your hair down = to relax
I m tearing my hair out = I m frustrated/angry/anxious

Keep an eye on something = to monitor something closely
To have eyes in the back of your head = to seem to be able to sense what is going on behind or outside of your field of vision. My teacher seems to have eyes in the back of her head
His eyes are bigger than his stomach - he piled more than his fill onto the plate and is now unable to eat it; he has taken more food than he can eat

I m pulling your leg = I m kidding you; I m joking
It cost me an arm and a leg = it was very expensive
You haven t got a leg to stand on = to be in a situation where you cannot prove something

Meaning of a collocation
Hi I could not find the right meaning of this collocation: forge a link

The term comes from chain making. A link is one part of a chain. When a chain is made, the loops of metal joined together are cut. To forge a link is to melt the ends of the loops together. That makes a much stronger chain than if the links remain open. Here s an illustration:
By the way, it s also where we get the saying "the weakest link." A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.

Cursive vs Print
Hi everyone

As you know, some schools are giving up teaching cursive writing or print. We are debating what we should do in my school and was wondering what are students learning in your part of the world when they start learning how to write.

Do they learn print first, then cursive? Is it the other way around? Have you stopped teaching one?

Looking forward your answers.

Wishing you a good day!

I was taught to teach print first, all capital letters, after that script and cursive. Children don t have a fine motor skill and they need practice and assistance to develop a good autonomy in writing. Frankly speaking, a lot of teachers don t follow those steps and teach all the three types of writing at the same time.

Regarding Recent printables versus the whole collection
I probably missed it somewhere, but after 30 uploads and hopefully 30 points, one is allowed to download from the most recent collections. How does one access the whole collection? I have 5 points and I downloaded from the whole collection I believe. Also I downloaded a worksheet twice by accident wasting a precious 1 point.
