• Teaching Letters b and d

• great idea in teaching kids b and d

• Great idea for kids who reverse the letters 'b' and 'd'

• This elementary school teacher and mom of three's blog is really cool because she comes up with creative ways to build literacy skills and great ways to correct common spelling and reading mistakes. This specific pin is a great example of practicing the correct formation of the letters b and d. Often, young children struggle distinguishing between the two letters because they are similar in shape and sound. Letter reversal is common for kindergartners so this activity would be great in the classroom. Shelley Xu examines the impact of New Literacy Studies (NLS) on literacy development. This activity fits in well with the concept of multiliteracies. Multiliteracies involve alternative modes of learning such as visual, gestural, and spatial. This activity relies on all three of those things - the students are creating visual representations of the correct letter formations, the students are using their hands to make the letters, and the students are practicing spatial relations between different letters. I would definitely use this activity in my classroom to help students learn their letters and how to read them.

teaching kids the consants that they get mixed up. I actually came up with the idea of the word bed last week to help my 5 year old distinguish b and d, just didn't think to use the hands to even further reinforce it. And she has another one for p and g. Brilliant!

b/d and p/g letter reversals are one of the most common mistakes made by early readers and writers. Here's a fun little solution that really helps

Here's the one for p and g. But I would use it for p and 9. I have more who get those mixed up.

Great trick for teaching children how to remember the positioning for lower case b and d.

Make your own class lift-the-flap book! Kids LOVE a lift-the-flap book with their own picture in it. A great project for the beginning of the school year.

A fun way to teach hour and minutes on a clock.

B & D Reversals Posters Amy says--Awesome I can never tell my B & D's apart--this is how I remember it--you turn your back to mom (she had the Boobs-thus the B shape and the small circle is facing away from her), but never to Dad (-a big belly on D and the small circle facing him--does that make sense) Not what I want to teach kids to be rude to there mom, but that is how I remember

Where has this been all my life?!?!? #2 may finally be able to "get" the difference between the 2 letters!

Helping students remember the difference between b,d,p, and g. Great visual!
