b and d Confusion Worksheet

What is the theory behind this b and d Confusion Worksheet?

Young learners often find it difficult to identify and write the letters b and d. It is in fact quite common and tends to go away with time and practice. The reason simply lies in their difficulty in grasping the left and right orientation of the said letters, a concept that is still very new to their developing brains. With practice and increased literacy skills, soon a child outgrows giving so much attention to individual letters as they move on to reading and writing words and sentences. 

How will the worksheet help?

This worksheet will help young learners practise writing the lowercase letters. The only way for them to remove their confusion in which shape represents which letter is to expose them to the right formation of the letters as much as possible. The worksheet will also help provide the thumbs up trick which can help them remember the letters. 

How to use the worksheet?

This worksheet is to be used in classrooms where young learners are practising literacy skills at an early age. It can be used as part of other lessons to reinforce what they have learned about the letters and make them practise as much as possible. Instruct them to trace the letters and memorise the thumbs technique for better recall.
