    I remember seeing an idea to help the children tell the difference between b and d. There was a bed, with the word bed and the b and d were the bedposts. I can't find my copy-does anyone know where I can find it?

    I don't have a copy, but I actually was going to look for this type activity for a case study I'm doing in my credential classes. Can't wait to see the activities people have...

    I don't have a sheet but I have my kids make a "bed" with their hands by making two fists giving thumbs up and push them together and show them how one hand looks like a b (left hand) and one looks like a d (right hand). It seems to help, I seem them do it and check themselves when writing.

    I have the students also do something with their hands...they put their thumbs together and the rest of their fingers are up and a "bed" is made. The B is on the left and d on the right. This has worked with past students. They get a good visual and use it while writing.

    I also do the "bed" trick with the hands. Last year, I also hung up letters to spell out bed so the kids who had trouble with the hand trick could look at the letters to help them.

    bat the ball

    if you do the Jolly Phonics song 'bat the ball', then you can say that the bat comes first for b....the song says bat bat bat bat bat the ball....so they can recognize a b because there is a bat first
