This file contains 5 pages of printables to help students visualize the difference between lower case b and d. Included are 2 full color posters (8.5 in x 11 in), 2 full color pages of desk tags, and 1 page of full color printable bookmarks. Each page contains an illustration to help students recall the direction of these commonly confused letters. The b poster features a bat and ball forming a lowercase b along with a simple alliterative sentence. The d poster features a deer formed into the letter d and a simple alliterative sentence. The posters are designed to be printed out, affixed to construction paper, laminated, and placed in a visible place in the classroom. Two versions of the desk tags are included. One version features the 2 signal pictures and the printed letters. The other features only the signal pictures without the letters. These tags can be printed out, laminated, and taped onto students' desks, inside writing notebooks, at work stations, or anywhere students are likely to be reading and writing. The b cards should be placed on the left side of the desk and the d cards should be placed on the right side of student desks. Bookmarks can be printed on cardstock and given to students as a reference while reading or writing. These visual materials are great for younger students, special education students, students with dyslexia, and any student who frequently reverses or confuses b and d when reading, writing, or spelling.
