Make a tic tac toe board
Make d’s and b’s as markers instead of x’s and o’s
Your child’s hands
Lots of children have trouble with d’s and b’s when learning the alphabet. So start early so they can recognize the difference by sight and then soon will follow the sound that is also different.
Start with your child’s hands laid on table with their thumbs facing each other. On the left thumb place the letter b , on the right thumb place the letter d. Ask them to tell what is different about the two letters. The circle part of the letter is on different sides of the straight line. Name each letter ten times. Remove their hands and move the letters around and let them point to d or b as you call it out.
Now you are ready to play tic tac toe with d’s and b’s. Only in this game every time you place your letter you say its name.
After they can easily identify the small letters do the same with capital letters B and D.
