Getting Kids Fired Up about Words: Why You Should Teach Morphology!
Did you know that English spelling reflects both sound and meaning? Mastering a language as large as English requires understanding how words are formed. Discover the power of the study of morphology (roots, suffixes and prefixes) for learning new words quickly and efficiently. We will learn:
- The relationship between words such as conscience, science, omniscient, prescient.
- How to use morphology to uncover the correct spelling of schwa sounds in words such as definite, politics and specific.
- Games to teach vocabulary to active students.
You will leave this workshop inspired and hungry for more. Words will never look the same to you again.
