This is the common core assessment for 2.RL.4 Describe how words and phrases supply rhythm and meaning in a story, poem, or song. The assessment is written on a second grade level. It has two poems and has questions on alliterations, rhyming words and onomatopoeia. The questions have multiple choice, short answer, fill in the blank and short essay (paragraphs). My assessments are great practice for the Common Core benchmark assessments having students to think critically.
