  • Rooting Out Meaning: Morpheme Match-Ups in the Primary Grades
    Students can expand their vocabulary and determine the meaning of unfamiliar words by developing an understanding of morphemes. If they learn, for example, that micro means small and scope means see, they can deduce that a microscope is a device that enables an individual to see small objects. This lesson encourages students to use morphemes to deconstruct and construct words. The students use the Morpheme Match-Ups handout and the Word Central website to engage in morphemic analysis of familiar and unfamiliar words. This lesson allows teachers to easily substitute their own morphemes for each activity.
