Help Children differentiate between the letters B & D.
Learning the names and sounds of letters is one of the very first, most basic steps in learning to read. Of course, one of the best things we can do for our children is to read to them from a very young age. Second to that, we can provide lots of opportunities for them to practice recognizing, saying and mimicking letter sounds either in their environment or fostered through fun game play.
Children sometimes confuse the letters B and D by sight as well as sound. Let this game help clear the confusion for your learners.
The Bear Brothers love painting pictures. Unfortunately, they don’t like signing their names on their artwork and have now mixed them up. Learners will help the Bear Brothers find their own pieces of art through phonetic practice. Pieces are sounded out. If the objects in the pictures start with the letter B, they belong to Blue Bear. If the objects start with the letter D, they belong to Dandelion Bear. At the end of the game, each bear should have the same number of pictures. Some pictures can be tricky and require careful attention to detail or problem solving with the process of elimination.
To use this resource simply print, cut apart, and play. Instructions for prep and play are included.
