Abbreviations (Mr., Mrs.)

This English and Literacy picture quiz takes a look at abbreviations and informs children of the most common abbreviations they see and may use in their writing. Many of the reading books given to KS1 children contain shortened ways of saying Mrs., Mr. etc. This quiz strengthens their knowledge on the abbreviations they see frequently and will refine their literacy and English language skills.

Sometimes we can shorten words by using an abbreviation. Your teacher and parents will use an abbreviation for their name. If your teacher is called Mister Smith, we would write Mr. Smith - changing Mister to Mr.
