Once children are fluent readers they encounter longer curriculum-based words with Greek and Latin roots. The use of phonics alongside morphology can really help to develop vocabulary, spelling and comprehension.
Steps we need to teach:
1. How to pronounce the word with correct syllable stress
2. How to decode and encode with syllables and phonemes
3. Understand the units of meaning within the word (morphemes)
4. Explore words that share these morphemes
A great way to enrich kids' language!
Our infographics to show how to ‘unpick’ these words and look at the morphemes (units of meaning) that build these tricky but useful words.
