This is a free game and fun activities work booklet for helping children with b/d confusion.
The game and booklet is good to go for a whole lesson. The game can be used as often as you like because children love the Bulldog character. This particular game concentrates on practising the sounds b and d and the work booklet is a sample of all the activities that are available in the complete Bulldog Letter Reversals Packs. The booklet has examples of sound, word and sentence level practise of using b and d.
This game and booklet is from a much larger pack that I have developed over a year whist working with dyslexic children:
Bulldog Letter Reversals is the uniquely themed package of games, worksheets and kinaesthetic activities pack for children aged 5-12 years. Bulldog is the adorable dog that features throughout this entire pack, helping children to learn and remember the difference between b and d.
Introducing your child to Bulldog, will give him / her a strategy to remember the difference between b and d and in most cases it will resolve the problem entirely and you will have a happy smiling child again.
For 24hours only you can get the full pack for dyslexic children here: http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Bulldog-b-d-Letter-Reversals-9-12-year-olds-Dyslexia
and the pack for younger children here:http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Bulldog-b-d-Letter-Reversals-for-5-8-year-olds
This is a very useful set of resources. The posters show some different ways that children who confuse the letters b and d can help themselves to remember them, I especially like the new multi-sensory method for remembering. The worksheets are carefully structured so that the level of support provided is gradually reduced. The games are interesting as they involve strategy. The children say the letter sounds b and d many times without becoming bored because they are focused on winning the games. James, aged 6, said: I like new games. This one is brilliant because I won two times! I liked putting the counters in a row and winning medals. Jackey Gurney B.Ed Dip RSA SpLD.
