Illustrating Literal Meanings of Common Sayings (You’re on a roll!)

My daughter’s fifth grade class was given a really interesting assignment.  The teacher asked them to make drawings that illustrated the literal meanings of common sayings.

In American English "You’re on a roll" means you’re going from success to success.  Here’s a drawing my daughter did of the literal meaning of being on a roll!

What a great idea to help kids learn new sayings!
