Teaching morphemes makes a difference in students’ reading comprehension, independent writing, as well as their speaking and listening comprehension. Understanding word parts puts “figuring it out” in the hands of the learner. I created this package to teach morphemes in a simple, engaging, and effective way. This package aligns to Common Core State Standards, but it isn’t boring! It doesn’t require lots of copying, but it does put most of the “hard work” on students.
In this package you will find 12 units, with 10 word parts in each unit—that’s 120 word parts. I have included two interactive notebook covers (one black and white, one in color), 12 word list cards (that can be glued directly in notebooks), 12 sets of flashcards, a reproducible printable for teaching each set (2 morphemes on each page), 12 unit quizzes, and a set of word wall cards (word part, its meaning, and 3 examples on each card), plus 5 games (Morpheme Bump—7 Bump Cards, Morphemes “I Have… Who has?”, Morphemes Fiddle Strips, and two morpheme board games). All of the games include morphemes from the word lists in this package.
To implement this package, you would copy a reproducible printable interactive notebook insert for 2 word parts, a class set of unit flashcards (all 10 cards are on one page), a class set of word list cards, and a class set of unit quizzes. I encourage students to use dictionaries to find examples of new words for each new word part. Having students glue their word lists and practice pages in their notebooks serves as a great “creative art” tool (let students take it as far as they can), but is also an effective resource for them throughout the year. Print and laminate the word wall word and post for the entire year, or post each set as you teach it. Print and laminate the game sets and use in whole group practice, and/or at a center for word work center.
