One of the most important pieces of morphology for students to understand is that the "ed" suffix changes the meaning of a word to the past tense.
Most students will have been introduced to this concept long before they reach your upper elementary classroom. However, this concept may be new to your English Language Learners and your struggling learners may need a refresh. Therefore, it becomes a great vocabulary mini lesson for your whole class! I like to keep my mini lessons "MINI", meaning 15 minutes! This mini lesson includes a connection, teaching point, teaching, active engagement, independent practice and share. The entire lesson is focused around the mentor text “Harry the Dirty Dog”.

This lesson works fabulously with a Reading Workshop framework or simply as a way to review morphology in a fun and engaging manner.
