In this hands-on session, participants will learn how to transition their instruction from phonology and syllables to morphemes through morphemic awareness activities. Participants will learn how vital it is to prepare the brain for the challenge of decoding by phonemes and then syllables to decoding by morphemes. In order to prepare for this step, participants will learn hands on ways to support students in moving to the next level of decoding, while improving not only their decoding skills, but their vocabulary knowledge as well.
