I don't know about you guys, but I spend a lot of time telling my students to look at that letter again. Is it a B or a D? Check your b's and d's. Not only does it interfere with their writing ability, but it really interferes with their reading. Reading "I rode in a bus." just doesn't have the same meaning as "I rode in a dus."
Since I teach special ed, a lot of my students have B and D reversal or confusion. I decided we needed some practice with reading these 2 letters. So I made some activities this week to help my students practice identifying their B's and D's.
The first one is a FREEBIE for you guys and it's this simple B and D Zap! game. Click on the picture to download yours for free! I'd love if you would leave some feedback if you find this game useful or it helps yours students.
I also made this set of activities that I've started using with my students as an independent center to practice. Click on the picture to check it out in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
There's also some other great freebies out there that can help.
Mrs. Wills Kindergarten has a cute Baby Diapers poster.
Make, Take, and Teach has a cute baseball and drum cue card.
The First Grade Parade has another cute poster that I love. She also has a great list of other posters out there.
And the first 3 people to leave a comment with their email address will get my B and D confusion activities for free!
