Any suggestions for this problem? I have two students having a lot of trouble.
Thanks!

Try teaching them mouth positions--what position your mouth is in when you make the sound.

Mouth open = Dd

Mouth closed = Bb

This was suggested by my learning support person and she also provided extra practice sheets to send home. Some of this is simply developmental. I also try doing: b-first draw the bat, then the ball and for d - first the doorknob, then the door. If they can remember to move from left to right they will not mix it up.... that's difficult for them anyway!!!

I have a poster of a bed in my room made out of the letters b e d. I show the students how to make a bed with the left hand making the b and the right hand the d while saying bed. When they've used a reversal or are unsure if they did, I have them make their bed and check their writing against that. I've seen the poster in several teaching catalogs.

Bad Dog!

My kids hold their 2 hands up in front of themself and make their fingers form the lowercase b and d letters. They then say "Bad Dog" and that helps them tell the difference between the B and D.

Bat begins w/ b and b begins with a bat.
Drum begins with d and d begins with a drum.
