Wordstone Tower

Wordstone Tower gives a selection of Greek and Latin morphemes, many of which are affixes. After putting them together in different combinations to create new words, you can try and figure out their likely meanings. The words can be put together completely at random, or you can reflect on which words have a plausible morphology (i.e. look like they could be English words because they use the roots and affixes in a plausible order). You could also make use of the question mark stone, which allows students to create their own morphemes and fit them together in any combination.
