Teach your students common abbreviations with this collection of worksheets, which cover addresses, state names, recipes, everyday expressions, formal forms of address and professional titles, and more. Abbreviations help streamline information for both writers and readers, but you must use them correctly in order to keep your writing clear.

Fun Fact: The ampersand (&) was originally designed by combining the letters "E," and "t," and was used in "&c" as an abbreviation for the Latin "et cetera" (and the rest).
