    It depends on the level of the students but it's always best to teach as much as you can with real life situations that the students can practice and do themselves.

    For a), take some pieces of old cloth and stain them with differnt things; coca cola, grape juice etc. Then the students practice.

    I couldn't get rid of the coke using an eraser.

    PREDICTIONS: You'll never get rid of the grape juice stain by rubbing it.

    b) Start with real things; a bunch of different colored magnets, pieces of paper, etc. Mix them up. sort them out. Students talk about the actions.

    Maria is sorting out the blue ones. Kotaro is sorting out the ...

    The leap from the concrete use of idiomatic phrases to the abstract is not that big once you grasp the inherent meaning. With real life it's relatively easy, with paper language it's much much tougher.
