Activities for b and d Reversals

Hi there! Just wanted to share a bit about one of my favorite products in my store Activities for b and d Reversals. When you think about it, b and d are the same letters, they’re just turned in different directions. Letter reversals, such as confusing b, d are common among young learners. The vast majority of children will grow out of this stage on their own. There may be a need for some concern if a child continues with letter reversals into and beyond the 3rd grade.   Day after day I've noticed that my little girl struggles with this concept. Since repeated errors only reinforce reversals, I decided to create  a set of worksheets and activities  to help her with B-D reversals. She had fun practicing with this set. She loves it and that makes me happy! Included in this packet are 7 different activities to help correct letter reversals: - WORD SORT with 30 word cards and 4 answer sheets. (pages 4-8) Print the word cards and the answer sheets, laminate then cut out the

Color Grid Reference Game + A Freebie

I played a fun game with my kiddos on a chessboard the other day. They absolutely loved it. This is a great activity because it has more than one focus. While practicing their colors, kiddos learn grid reference and build their fine motor skills during play. Here is what you need: a chessboard pom poms (lots of them) recording sheets (optional)  The objective of the game is simple. Set up the chessboard with pom poms. Call the coordinate points, the children have to read the grid coordinates and identify colors in the correct positions.  Here is the recording sheet I wiped up for this. I created a simple recording sheet without coordinates. You can grab a copy by clicking the picture. The objective of the game is to read the grid coordinates name the color and simply color the recording sheets. Setting up this game is a little bit time-consuming. So I created a resource based on this game. Now I can use this game with my students for independent w

Color Sight Word Puzzle

Here is a fun game to play with your students. This game is a great way to practice color recognition, reading, and more! Putting a puzzle together can be challenging for those without much experience. However, it will flexing your students brain muscles, and improve fine motor skills. Puzzles are a great option for your early finishers, morning work, or even intervention groups. Puzzles work well as individual work, partner work, and small group work. Students with special needs also do well with these, once they understand the concept. Just print and cut on the lines and you have instant engaging activity. I recommend printing them on cardstock and laminating them. You can put them into plastic baggies. There are 6 puzzle sets, 8 pieces to each puzzle. You can make your sets color coded by printing the cards on the white side of the scrapbook paper. In case you do not have scrapbook paper, I added a different zig-zag background paper for each puzzle set.
