Less preparation time

Means you can focus on teaching.

English is complex. Don’t waste your precious teaching time re-inventing the wheel. Word Cracker is a complete morphology program with every lesson and every teaching point designed and built by structured literacy experts. 

Whole school consistency

Every teacher reinforcing the same ideas and concepts.

Students need high-quality, consistent instruction across the board. Word Cracker allows them to move from teacher to teacher, subject to subject and year to year without having to learn new terminology and meta language.

Complex spelling made easy

Instant patterning, definitions and text to voice at your fingertips.

It is difficult to think on your feet and recall the meaning of every morpheme, or pattern a word, while trying to manage a class and deal with random questions!

Imagine having every morpheme definition at your fingertips or automatically detecting safe and dangerous end patterns. Word cracker lets you do this with the click of a button.

Teach your way or follow the program

A set structure doesn't stop you teaching your way

Word Cracker has a detailed and structured sequence for teaching morphology. But it also gives you complete control over the morphemes you want to use. Choose any combination of the built-in morphemes and lessons, or make your own by typing straight onto the cracker.

What our users say

The online Word Cracker has been useful, particularly when teaching to the whole class.

As a Year One teacher, it has been a tool which I have used as a part of my literacy routine to explicitly introduce morphology at a foundational level.

The beauty of the online wordcracker is that it is easy to use and quick to access using IWB. The wordcracker lines up with the wordcracker training and resource book allowing me to use it to explicitly teach both morphology and relative spelling rules to the whole class with ease.

The pre-set board setups have been fantastic as it allows me to quickly setup the board ready to teach a given spelling rule for example dropping the e when adding a vowel suffix. Not only has this been time saving for me as a teacher but also it allows for quick review of rules taught.

The students love the online wordcracker and even in a Year One classroom. We often find ourselves exploring roots and their morphology and how adding different suffixes and prefixes can make multiple different words.

I am currently building this into my explicit literacy block and the wordcracker means that I can access some morphology quickly using a familiar resource (the wordcracker). This means I can quickly expose students to new learning and reveiw this through the week which I have found has been the most effective way of addressing morphology at a foundation level.

This year was an amazing one working with my Year 2s who love the Word Cracker sessions in our Daily Review.

We are an MSL school and we also incorporate other ways of teaching Reading and Writing. The students are using their learnt MSL skills and applying these when using prefixes, suffixes and base words. I have been including Word Cracker in our lessons predominately for exposure and the children always want to learn more about prefixes and suffixes they have not learnt yet.

For example, one of our Words of the Day was ‘grace’. The students then wanted to workshop how to separate the part of the word for graceful and gracefully and then came up with ungraceful, and ungracefully, and it even extended to using -ness. This then went off on a tangent to ‘messy, busy’ and they remembered when we incidentally learned about dropping the y to add /i/ to add -ness when we had these as irregular words.

They have become stronger readers and spellers as they have been using the Word Cracker PD. It is such a valuable resource, even at this younger level. I ended up taking the middle primary Word Cracker whiteboards and was using them with the Year 2s.
