How to create fill in the gap worksheets?

This worksheet creator is designed to help you create printable English fill in the gap worksheets for students to write the correct answer. These can be used to assess vocabulary and sentence structure. They can also be used to assess a student's understanding. What's really great about these worksheets is that they can be adapted to be used at a variety of learner levels.

Enter your text and then click on the words that you want to be filled in by your students. The words you select will appear at the end of the sentence. To make things a bit more difficult, you can choose whether you’d like the answers to be scrambled so that students have to both unscramble the answers and then find the correct place to fill the gap.

You can choose the English font and size of the text as well as the title for the worksheet. The English learning worksheet you create will be ready for you to print When printing, you may select how many worksheets you would like to have without answers and how many with answers. The worksheets with answers will show the gap filled with the correct word and have it underlined.

Fill in the Gap Examples:

I have a cat 


I ____ a cat. (have)

If you wanted to select more than one answer:

I have a cat. His name is Percy.


I ____ a cat. His name ___ Percy. (is, have)

If you wanted to make it even more advanced, for example:

I am a cat owner. They are brown cats. My favourite cat is Percy.

which becomes

I ___ a cat owner. They ____ brown cats. My favourite cat ___ Percy. (are, am, is)

Once you have printed your English Fill in the Gap worksheet, your students can start practicing right away! You can even get the students to mark their own work – with these worksheets students can check their answers using the answer sheet.
