Word-Builder Bugs

Write the following on the board:

re + take, under + take;
dis + order, re + order;
un + able, dis + able.

Tell students to join the word parts and to write the new words. Then have students make a three-segment, six-legged bug, label each segment with a base word, and rewrite the new words on the appropriate legs.
