Teach These 110 Interchangeable Word Parts and Increase Your Students'
Reading Vocabulary By
Thousands of Words... Really!

Word Analysis Cover
Why THIS book?  It is a systematic, common sense approach to teaching the most frequently seen and heard word parts (morphemes).  It is not an exhaustive study of Latin and Greek morphemes, it is a simplified study of the Greek and Latin morphemes presented in their most frequently seen forms.   By learning the meanings of these word parts, a reader can determine an approximation of literally thousands of words.  Many times, an approximation of a word meaning is all that we need to be able to understand what the author is saying. Includes practice activities and assessments in each chapter.

Why do YOU as a teacher or parent also need to know the most frequently seen morphemes?  If YOU know the word parts and their meanings, your teaching will be greatly enhanced as you can recognize and seize countless “teachable moments”  throughout your day.

Practice and repetition are very important when memorizing. These electronic flashcards can be used as part of any word analysis study.  They were strategically created to be a systematic way of learning and practicing the most common morphemes.  They will help your students learn the morphemes and commit them to memory.

The electronic flashcards are actually 12 separate slide shows with each slide transitioning automatically.  An individual morpheme appears first, then after waiting several seconds to allow the students to say its meaning, the answer is shown.  You may either project the slide shows on a screen for whole class practice or download onto multiple computers for individual practice.  Each set introduces at least 8  morphemes and reviews previously learned morphemes, giving students spaced-review.  Begin with Set#1, then go to Set #2, etc.

They also are organized to reinforce the lessons in the book, Word Analysis: Unlocking the Meaning of Words. So, Set #1 flashcards go with Set #1 in the book, etc. There are also 2 review sets, one after Set #5 in the book and the other after Set #10.

What do experts say about teaching vocabulary?

  1. Vocabulary should be taught in context.  In this book, each new morpheme is taught in the context of a word and a sentence.
  2. Vocabulary instruction should include activating new knowledge. This book provides three opportunities to activate each morpheme. (Two in each set and 4-Square Activation activity (template provided).
  3. Vocabulary should be revisited.  Many morphemes are repeated throughout this book. PLUS, there are two formal cumulative reviews (one after set #5 and one after set #10). Reviewing with flashcards is strongly suggested and is mandatory for success. Electronic flashcards are sold separately. It is also recommended that the student(s) also make their own flashcards using index cards and markers.
