This study investigated whether the children of the 1st and 3rd grade elementary school have knowledge morphological derivational, and what its relation to performance in written spelling of words alone. The morphology is the production structure and the meaning of the words from the morphemes which are the smallest units of meaning from one language. This study involved 20 children from a public municipal school, and 12 children from the 1st and eight of the 3rd grade. We used one task to evaluate the writing spelling - Writing of isolated words under Dictation, and another to assess the morphological knowledge - production of neologisms. Both series are best left with the task of dictation than in the neologism; the 3rd got a superior performance in relation to the 1st series in the two tasks; the difference between series was higher in task of neologism; the task of saying the 3rd grade is separated from the 1st mainly in writing to correct irregular words; and finally, the production of neologism noticed that 1st and 3rd grade were better in the invention of words for a fee of suffix. We conclude that children already had knowledge that the morphological and maintains positive relationship with the performance in the writing.
