This activity is designed to go with my other product, the ebook:"The Difference Between Lowercase “b” and “d” Original Story."
After reading my story to find out why 'b' looks at 'd,' students will then have a chance to play with the letters in this quick hands on project.
Students will think of the word 'bed' and the message from my story "Why b Looks at d" to remember the phonemes of b and d.
-Coloring materials (crayons, markers, pencils)
-3 worksheets per a student download and printed
1. Have students decorate the b and d colorfully
2. Decorate the person piece (add arms and hair as you like...I saw a green mohawk in my classroom...be creative!)
3. Help students cut out the b,d,e, and person piece when they are colored
4. Arrange the letter pieces to spell 'bed' on the piece of paper that says 'name'
5. Once the letters spell bed glue them into place
6. Place the person on the word 'bed" as if it IS a real bed
By the end of this lesson students should be able to identify the beginning and end phonemes in 'bed.' As students move on in their phonics lessons they can always remember the word 'bed' to help recall letter sounds.
