Morphology Dictionary (prefixes, suffixes, & roots!)

Hi everyone!! I'm stopping by to share a new item available in my store. It's something I've been working on all year and it is a big part of spelling and word work in our classroom!

It's a student reference book called...
This dictionary features 320 commonly used prefixes, suffixes, and roots...all defined for the students. There are spaces to fill in words for each affix or root, as well as a places for illustrations...
The other part of this resource is a HUGE time-saver...
Teacher Word Lists! There are words already listed for each of the 320 affixes and roots...over 7,500 words to choose from in all!
The Morphology Dictionary is a resource that can be used many different ways. Teachers can...

• create and differentiate their own spelling lists (this is what I do!)
• supplement the spelling words within their current program

• set up word work to complete during Reader's Workshop

• plan for vocabulary instruction

I will be back this week with photos and examples of how we utilize this resource in our a chance to win a copy for your class, if you would like!

What resources do you like to use for spelling in your class?

  12. This looks fabulous!! I use a program called Caesar's English, where we learn Latin roots as well as common words we use that also come from Latin (like melancholy and countenance).
