95 Percent Group Announces Acquisition of Morpheme Magic

95 Percent Group LLC, the trusted source for comprehensive, proven literacy solutions, announced the acquisition of Morpheme Magic, a company founded by Dr. Deborah R. Glaser, Ed.D., to help learners build morphological awareness. “More than 40 states have recognized the power of the science of reading and adopted policies that help readers build the foundations and advanced skills of language in a structured progression,” said Brad Lindaas, CEO, 95 Percent Group.  “To provide teachers with the resources they need to successfully implement this proven approach, we are continuing to grow our Literacy Ecosystem™ through product development and acquisitions of high-quality resources.  Morpheme Magic provides a powerful supplement for addressing this important component of literacy development with learners.”

Building on the 2023 acquisitions of Hill Reading Achievement Program (now 95 RAP™) and Tools 4 Reading, the addition of Morpheme Magic continues to grow the company’s One95™ Literacy Ecosystem™, which equips educators with a comprehensive toolkit to unlock the power of literacy for every child.

Morphological awareness is the ability to recognize, understand, and employ the units of meaning that make up words, helping to build student reading comprehension skills.  Morpheme Magic offers two supplemental curriculum offerings, each complementing the morphology lessons included in 95 Percent Group’s flagship 95 Phonics Core Program®.  Morpheme Magic: Lessons to Build Morphological Awareness for Grades 4-12 features 53 lessons, including assessments, covering suffixes, prefixes, roots, and Greek combining forms.  Morphemes for Little Ones: Bringing the Magic of Language into K-3 Classrooms provides systematic, structured literacy lessons to help educators teach morphological awareness appropriately to students.

“The acquisition of Morpheme Magic strengthens the One95 Literacy Ecosystem’s support for beginning readers and uniquely positions the Company as the go-to resource to accelerate the development of foundational literacy skills.  We look forward to working with Dr. Glaser and to the continued success of Morpheme Magic as part of 95 Percent Group,” said Eric Geveda, Managing Director at Leeds Equity Partners.

“I founded Morpheme Magic in response to teachers who told me that they knew morphological awareness was important but were not sure how to teach it,” said Dr. Glaser, who also created Top 10 Tools, a comprehensive science of reading course that was included in 95 Percent Group’s acquisition of Tools for Reading.  “95 Percent Group is the perfect new home for Morpheme Magic as it will integrate seamlessly into the One95™ Literacy Ecosystem™ and empower even more teachers around the country with a trusted, proven approach to foundational reading skills.”

In addition to the acquisition of Morpheme Magic’s product offerings, Dr. Glaser will continue to work directly with 95 Percent Group in a consulting capacity.
