Clip to ScrapBook #2

with "making a bed." Put your fists together, bent fingers touching, thumbs up. That makes something like a bed shape with thumbs as head and foot boards. Reading left to right the "b" or /b/ of bed is thumb on left, finger loop on the right--making the shape of a lower case b. The right hand makes the shape for a lower case d and is at the end of both the fists together "bed" and the word bed.

Some teachers use a picture of a bed to help reinforce this. You can use lower case letters with a pillow and maybe covers lightly added to the picture.

Kids can put their fists together and check if they used the right shape for b or d when they write or read. After awhile they don't need the physical/visual cue.
