Common Phrases Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a language exercise focusing on the concept of “assonance” in English phrases. Students are instructed to complete each phrase by selecting the correct missing word from the word box provided at the top. Each phrase is a common English idiom or expression that, when completed correctly, will contain assonance—a repetition of vowel sounds within nearby words. The exercise contains eight incomplete phrases, each with a blank space where the student must insert the correct word.

The worksheet aims to teach students about assonance, a literary device used to add rhythm and musicality to writing. By completing common English phrases, students learn to identify and understand the effect of repeated vowel sounds in language. The activity enhances vocabulary knowledge and reinforces the understanding of idiomatic expressions. It encourages critical thinking as students must choose words that complete the phrases meaningfully and create assonance.
