Two Programs One Goal - Academic Achievement

Morphemes Materials

All the materials in both It’s NOT Greek to Me! and Latin and Loving It! are “ready to teach” once you receive them in hand – meaning that both courses of study (12 Greek morpheme lessons and 18 Latin morpheme lessons) can be implemented in your classroom’s word roots curriculum immediately, or perhaps even across your entire Language Arts Department.

Morpheme Benefits

By teaching root words, prefixes, and suffixes as morphemes – that is to say, smaller parts of a larger whole – students are able and encouraged to apply their prior knowledge toward cracking open whole new worlds of words that they’d previously found inaccessible. And these two morpheme programs do it best – by incorporating multiple facets of proven, effective instruction that teach prefixes and suffixes in a fun way.

Although initially designed for grades seven (Greek) and eight (Latin), these materials have been used successfully by teachers from grades five through eleven. For optimal SAT/ACT benefits, teachers chose to complete the programs before the senior year. Each program is a stand-alone program. A teacher can choose to do either the Greek - Latin or both
