Frindle Phrases

2-page middle school literature worksheet by Steve Denny


Nick, the main character of the book Frindle, discovers that words, even phrases, have more than one meaning. Words evolve and take on new definitions, and words become parts of phrases that associate the original meaning of the word with a new evolving definition. For example, the phrase, "clamming up" takes the original word clam to a new definition or usage of the word. This activity provides a list of phrases taken from the book and shows students how words evolve into phrases.
