PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Do you have students who just cannot master the difference between lower case b and lower case d?

Are you familiar with the following favorite books?

• Junie B Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, by Barbara Park
• The Stupids Step Out by, Harry G Allard
• Captain Underpants, by Dav Pilkey

Due to the language, they are not my favorite books, but kids LOVE them.

I do not condone the use of the word “dumb” in class, but one year I had a group of 5 students who just could not keep their “b”s and “d”s straight in writing or reading. These same students giggled uncontrollably with the words “underwear” and “naked”. They also could not control their snickers when somebody passed gas.

This little mnemonic caught this group of students’ attention instantly and cemented the difference of the letters in their brains.

So, I present “Baby b and Dumb d.” An easy and electrifying mnemonic that guarantees students will remember the proper way to write lower case b and lower case d.

In addition to the mnemonic,

• 3 worksheets are included so students can illustrate it
• Pages 1 and 2 can be used for posters in your room
