Reading Help with b and d

Reading Help with b and d

It is normal for early readers to have trouble distinguishing between “b” and “d” while reading. The letters look the same except they are facing opposite directions. Here is one way I am helping my new reader to recognize the difference between these two letters:

  1. Look at the word and see if it has a “b” or “d.” (Some words have both letters. If so, do this process of pointing for each time the letter appears in the word.)
  2. Point to the letter on the picture that matches the one in the word.
  3. Say the letter sound. (This step can be skipped if the reader is confident in the letter sounds.)
  4. Say the word.

What have you found helpful in distinguishing these letters?
