Morpheme Machine

Morpheme Machine

These worksheets are a great brainstorming activity for students to develop word banks based on prefixes and suffixes. Each ‘morpheme machine’ has a base word that needs as many prefixes and suffixes added to it as possible. Use the front page as a handy reference for common prefixes and suffixes that will build your students’ morphemic awareness.

Cut each A4 page in two and use as a class brainstorming activity or during literacy rotations.

Suitable for
  • Relief Teachers
Lesson Structure
  • Individual Activity
  • Rotations / Group Work
  • Class Activity


Use the prefix and suffix display posters to refer to a larger word bank.


Students can create their own morpheme machines for a partner to complete.
