Transcript of Copy of Assonance Lesson Plan

What is Assonance?
You may not know what assonance means
or where it is seen,
but soon you will know that it happens to float
in almost everything!
Assonance is...
Assonance is the repetition of vowel sounds to create internal rhyming within phrases and sentences
Examples of Assonance
The man with the tan was the meanest in the land
See how the words 'man,' 'tan,' and 'land' have been used to provide a specific sound
Excerpt from 'The Bells' by Edgar Allen Poe
...From the molten golden notes...
'Molten,' 'golden,' and 'notes' all share a hard 'o' vowel sound
Even in the food we eat!
'Reese's' and 'pieces' both make a hard 'e' sound
My puppy punched me in the eye.
My rabbit whacked my ear.
My ferret gave a frightful cry
and roundhouse kicked my rear.
My lizard flipped me upside down.
My kitten kicked my head.
My hamster slammed me to the ground
and left me nearly dead.
So my advice? Avoid regrets;
no matter what you do,
don’t ever let your family pets
take lessons in kung fu.
–Kenn Nesbitt
