– What kind of expressions are these? – Why are they called winged? – To better understand, let’s complete the tasks.

III. Formation of knowledge, skills, abilities.

Exercise 1.

1) Listen to the text. Think about what words from the text can be used to title it?

One day, my younger brother Deniska and I were invited to go fishing by our neighbor, Uncle Yura. He said that he knows a fishing place where the fish themselves are caught on a hook, which I can’t even describe in a fairy tale. He promised to treat you to some fish soup - you'll lick your fingers. In a word, it will be interesting, we will not regret it. He ate the dog on this matter. Deniska and I opened our ears and lost our heads with happiness. We ran home in one breath to collect gear. At the appointed time, we waited for our neighbor at the entrance. We waited an hour, two, three. Then I realized that Uncle Yura was simply fooling us. My brother is going to roar like crazy from insult. I felt uneasy. I felt out of place. That's how my brother and I fell for the bait.

– What does this expression mean? – Is it possible to give such an illustration for this title? (illustration) - What other expressions used in a figurative meaning were found in the text? - How do you understand? – What other expressions do you know? – What do they mean?

2) In the Russian language there are many such expressions that can sometimes be replaced with one word.


at full speed - quickly fool your head - deceive a teaspoon per hour - slowly at your fingertips - close

– What do they mean? – Can they be understood in the literal sense? - This is the kind of misunderstanding that can happen.

3) Shut up Petrus, they say! Bite your tongue, they say! He bit his tongue and screamed louder!

-What happened to Petrus? - Why did this happen? – How should you understand if you bite your tongue?

Task 2.

4) And now the task for the teams. I'm reading a poem. Find a stable rpm. What do they mean?

1 team.

Outside the window the grass had barely turned yellow, two brothers were chopping wood. One did it carelessly. The other rolled up his sleeves.

– What is the sustainable turnover here? – When is it used?

2nd team.

He turned out to be a fine fellow, was able to overcome the burden, did not lose face in the dirt, and did not sit in his galoshes.

– What is the turnover here? – When do they use it?

Team 3

You can hang it on a nail. Towel and cane. A lamp, a cloak or a hat, And a rope, and a rag. But never, anywhere, hang your nose in trouble.

– What is the turnover here? – When is it used?

5) From the history of turnover (reports).

It is already difficult for us to explain the history of many revolutions; they appeared a very long time ago. The expressions “sleeveless” and “rolled up sleeves” appeared in those distant times when Russians wore clothes with very long sleeves. For men it is 95 cm, and for women it is 40 cm more. Try working in clothes with sleeves like these. It's inconvenient, it will turn out bad. To get things done, you had to roll up your sleeves. The people noticed this and began to talk about people who did something poorly, lazily - work carelessly, and about people who worked skillfully - work - rolling up their sleeves. Although the sleeves may be short. The expression got into trouble arose when a craftsman was twisting ropes on a special machine called prosak. If you hesitate, you will end up in a floor machine or a long sleeve, and you won’t get out right away. It’s good that you’ll stay alive, you’ll just ruin your clothes. And now they say: I got into trouble - I found myself in an awkward position. The well-known topsy-turvy phrase was born in ancient times and was associated with humiliating punishment. The guilty master was seated backwards on an old horse. Rich clothes with an embroidered collar were worn inside out - inside out. In this form, the guilty person was driven through the streets. And now we say topsy-turvy if we dress the wrong way. But this can be said not only about clothes. Of course, you all have heard the expression “shout at the top of Ivanovskaya”. And this expression is connected with the Moscow Kremlin. The square in the Kremlin on which the bell tower of Ivan the Great stands was called Ivanovskaya. On this square, special people - clerks, announced decrees, orders and other documents concerning the residents of Moscow and the entire people of Russia. So that everyone could hear clearly, the clerk read very loudly, shouting throughout Ivanovskaya.

6) Some stable phrases were taken from Russian fairy tales. Many are familiar to you.

What fairy tales did these expressions come from?

  • Stand before me like a leaf before the grass. (Sivka-Burka)
  • Horns and legs.
  • To some the roots, and to others the tops.
  • The beaten one is lucky.
  • By magic.

– How do you understand these turns?

7) Game “Finish the phrase”

  • Go there - (I don’t know where)
  • Soon the fairy tale will tell - (but it won’t be done soon)
  • This is all a saying, not a fairy tale - (a fairy tale will come)


– How do you understand them?

8) Some phrases include words naming domestic and wild animals. Guess (work at the board)

hungry like a (wolf) cunning like a (fox) cowardly like a (hare) clumsy like a (bear) puffed up like a (turkey) dumb like a (fish)

– Why did these expressions appear?

9) Sketch “Neither fluff nor feather.”

Early in the morning, Mama Kvochka sent her son to class. She said: “Don’t fight, don’t cock.” It's time to hurry up. Well, no fluff, no feather. An hour later, the barely alive Cockerel goes home. He barely hobbles from the school yard, And in fact there is neither fluff nor feather on him.

– What did Mama Kvochka wish? – Why does the poem end with the words “There is neither fluff nor feather”? – Where are they used figuratively?

10) Sketch “Three riddles”.

The guys quarreled during recess. One shouts: “I’ll show you where the crayfish spend the winter!” And the second one to him: “Look, he’s gone wild, he’s going out of his way!” Then the duty officer ran up to the guys and started pushing them away. And they attacked him: “You’re still sitting!” Perhaps you sleep with your eyes open? Then the duty officer shouts: “Stop, guys!” Solve your riddles.

– What expressions did you come across?

Who can explain? Do not quarrel! Remember that there may be trouble and you will quarrel. Then you will burn with shame.

11) From history (reports).

I will show where crayfish spend the winter, connected with the history of our people. Many landowners loved to eat crayfish, but in winter it was difficult to catch them: crayfish hide under snags and spend the winter there. In the winter, guilty peasants were sent to catch crayfish, who had to get the crayfish from ice-cold water. He would freeze in shabby clothes, his hands would get cold, and after that the person would often get sick. This is where it came from: if they want to seriously punish someone, they say: “I’ll show you where the crayfish spend the winter.”

Getting out of your skin and sleeping with your eyes open are connected to the living world. They shed, i.e. Crayfish and snakes crawl out of their skins. Fish sleep with their eyes open.

12) Game “Pantomime”.

Explain the popular expressions using gestures, and we will guess.

  • Roar in three streams.
  • Open your ears.
  • Real jam.
  • Sleep with your eyes open.

13) Writing stories.

– Write a short story using popular expressions.

  • Fairy.
  • A story from life.
  • Dream.

14) Crossword.


Name it in one word:

1. Fool your head... (deceive)

3. A teaspoon per hour...
Finish the phrase:

2. Dumb as ... (fish)

3. Hungry like...

Say it in one word:

1. Just a stone's throw... (close)

2. With all your might...
Finish the phrase:

3. Cunning like... (fox)

4. Cowardly like...
IV. Bottom line.

– What expressions have we met?

– Can they be understood in the literal sense?

V. Assessments.

- Guys, you all worked well today, actively, rolling up your sleeves, working. No one lost face or sat in a galosh. The teams deserved first place, so I decided to reward all participants with very expensive valuable gifts. Here is an incomplete list: TV, computer, tape recorders, video cameras, BMW car and others, kindly presented by the company “Horns and Legs”. The presentation will take place as soon as the cancer whistles on the mountain.

- Did you fall for the bait? - What, are your ears hanging?

But seriously, the “finger-licking” prize awaits you. Be careful not to swallow your tongue.

Ivan Andreevich Krylov (1769-1844) is one of the most prolific Russian writers popular expressions

This is due to such features of the fable genre as brevity, the presence of characteristic characters, the need to summarize and formulate the moral of the entire fable.

To be fair, we note that a considerable part of the plots of I.A.’s fables. Krylova he learned from his predecessors - Aesop and Lafontaine. But a significant part of the fables are quite original and were created by him literally from recent historical events (for example, the fable “The Wolf in the Kennel” was inspired by the war with Napoleon) or from everyday stories of that time (for example, “The Curious”).

In conclusion, I would like to note that Ivan Andreevich, despite the rapid recognition of his satirical talent by both the people and the imperial court, was himself distinguished by some human weaknesses, in particular gluttony and laziness.

Well, perhaps this circumstance helped him not to fall into excessive moralizing when composing his fables.

A good addition to the catchphrases from Krylov’s fables are phraseological units from fables about animals and simply phraseological units about animals, as well as phraseological units from Pushkin’s fairy tales.

I think that you may also be interested in the phraseological units of A.S. Griboyedov or phraseological units about books, reading and writing.
