Morphemes are the smallest part of a word that has meaning. They are prefixes, roots (or bases), and suffixes. Learning to pull apart unknown words to make meaning increases reading and writing skills. This is a comprehensive, week-long lesson that encourages students to compose and decompose words to make meaning. It encourages Synthesis, the 5th level of Bloom's Taxonomy.

If you love this week-long plan, please consider purchasing subsequent weeks offered as individual weeks or bundles.

Included are:

Day One... Quick lesson in Google Slides breaking down a word that contains morphemes for the week

Day Two...Class discussion led by the remainder of the Google slide presentation introducing 9-12 morphemes. Students take notes using the form provided.

Day Three...Students research the morphemes for the week using popular etymology websites to find words containing the morpheme, its meaning, and then make connections to the word.

Day Four...This is a student favorite! Using cards included in this lesson, students make up their own words using the week's morphemes and any they have previously learned. They then put the new, made-up word in a sentence which will be used in Day Five when a peer must decode the meaning of the word.

Day Five...Students trade Day Four papers and try to figure out the words their peers created.
