Product Description
The study of morphemes (prefixes, suffixes and root words) has long been used in the secondary classroom, but today researchers are bringing this important component for increasing vocabulary down to the primary grades.

“Word structure at the morpheme level should be addressed as early as first grade. Why? Because knowledge of roots and affixes facilitates rapid, efficient, and accurate reading of unfamiliar vocabulary. ” (Mountain, 2005)

Learning Vocabulary through Morphological Study is the place to start. This download uses current research to help you build stronger readers. It includes the following:

• What does research say about vocabulary instruction?
• The art of vocabulary instruction

• More guidelines for incorporating morphemic word study in the primary grades
