Spot And Use It Worksheet

Worksheet Description

This worksheet is designed to teach the concept of assonance, which is the repetition of vowel sounds in nearby words, and is a common technique in poetry and prose to create a musical effect. The first section asks students to identify and underline the assonance in four common phrases provided. The next part requires the students to complete four sentences in a way that creates assonance. Finally, there are two prompts that encourage the students to write their own sentences employing assonance, using the ideas of “an animal” and “a feeling.”

The worksheet is trying to teach students how to recognize and use assonance to enhance their writing skills. By underlining assonance in established phrases, students learn how vowel sounds can be repeated for effect. In completing sentences to create assonance, they apply their understanding to modify language in a creative way. Writing their own sentences based on given ideas allows them to practice using assonance independently, reinforcing the concept and its application in language arts.
