Toss and Turn or Toss the Ball?

Today I was reading "The Princess and the Pea" with one of my ESL students from China and she got to a part where the girl "tossed and turned" all night. She stopped reading when she came to "tossed" and looked at me to make sure she was reading the right word. I'm sure she was picturing the girl tossing a ball all night long.


  1. Funny! Thanks, Faith! "It's a toss-up," "Toss your hat in the ring," - so many expressions that we come up with in English to confuse our ELLs!

  2. How about "Toss your cookies"?
