b and d reversals and confusion

b / d reversals: 2 Tricks to Try!



1) For a couple of weeks, have a lower case “b” written in blue on the student’s desk and posted in the room. After written assignments, have the student go back and trace all of the “b”s (correct if needed) on the paper with a blue colored pencil. (And...blue begins with “b”.)

2) Drumstick begins with a “d”. When you write the lowercase “d”, first you draw the “drum”, and then you draw the “stick”.
