Helping B and D Reversals (freebie included)

B and D reversals are something I see often in my students reading and writing.  I've posted before {here} about some of the errors that I often see in struggling readers and how I correct the errors while reading {here}. Today, I'm sharing with you some of the activities that I use to help students practice differentiating between the letters B and D. Sometimes it seems like my students really just need so much practice and lots of visual cues to help them out.  I like to give my students consistency with how I describe the formation of B and D. I always use the sayings "bat before the ball" for B and "doughnut on a stick" for D. This helps my students remember what part of the letter they need to form first. I keep some of these types of activities handy all the time. I can easily pull them out whenever we have a few extra minutes or if I just think my students need some more discrimination practice between the two letters.  You can check these activities out by clicking on the picture below or {here}. One of my students favorite games is this B and D Zap! game that's a freebie in my store. We play this game as a "speed" game. I set my timer for 3 minutes and students must quickly say the correct letter to keep a card. We try to do as many as we can in 3 minutes. There are special cards that students can pull, such as the Zap! card. The Zap! card means students must give all of their cards back to me. There is also a skip and reverse card to keep the game fun. My students love playing Zap! You can check it out by clicking on the picture below or {here}.  I hope this gives you some helpful ideas for your students!

I've pinned this before, but I just noticed something. Marty's right foot points towards the back in the past, center in the present, and forward in the future. That's awesome.
