usuful phrases
hi ! I am struggling to find a nice and catchy name for a poster with words/ phrases  that we come across in our coursebook. I would like to put up the poster on the classroom wall so that the kids always see it.

Looking for a catchy name for the poster:

Phrases that may come in usuful/ come in handy?

Catchy phrases?

What about nifty phrases?

Any ideas?

Having a watchword of the day/week could be a fun way to learn and revise words or phrases from your poster.
