Be sure and check out the PREVIEWS and thumbnails, for bd Part 1 & bd Part 2 to see lots of the goodies included in this packet.
I truly believe the more you immerse your students in a variety of engaging letter activities, the easier it is for them to learn, as well as differentiate.
With that in mind, I designed this jumbo packet with a huge variety of all sorts of different, interesting and fun activities: worksheets, games, posters, tips, craftivities, graphs, assessments, stories, songs, emergent readers, puzzles, and even a Venn diagram, some graphic organizers, a maze and a nursery rhyme thrown in.
Select what’s appropriate for your kiddos to use for: table top lessons, homework, partner play, games, a sub folder, early finishers, assessing, or centers.
Many completed activities make awesome bulletin board displays as well.
I think I’ve stuffed just about everything you’ll ever need, for helping students to differentiate between the lowercase letters b and d, with plenty left over to use for your individual letter of the day/week activities.
Whether it’s a “bat and ball”, “bunny and dog”, “drum and stick”, “dish and spoon”, “handy hands”, “bulldog”, “baby b & daddy D”, a “closed and open mouth”, “Here’s looking at you”, or a “doorknob and door”, one will click for your kiddos, and I’ve included them all in this packet.
When teaching the alphabet, I teach b and d together. Right from the get-go my students have a trick that will help them remember the difference.
To help further reinforce the memory tactic, for every tip-trick, there’s a poster, as well as matching worksheets and activities.
So that you can reinforce more than one standard, math skills like counting, adding, subtracting, greater & less than, as well as graphing, shapes and tally marks, are all incorporated in some of the activities and worksheets.
Because the world is not made up entirely of “Times New Roman”, a variety of fun fonts are incorporated in the packet as well.
To conserve paper and ink, I also designed many of the worksheets with two on a page.
I’m Diane, from Teach With Me. It is my sincere hope that whatever you choose, you’ll be delighted to find that your students will no longer confuse b & d, having been armed with an arsenal of fun tips and tricks.
