b and d


Posted by Jen Jamieson | Posted in Literacy, Parent Information | Posted on 03-03-2015


We can look at a picture of the word “bed.” The letters actually make the shape of a bed. We know the first sound in “bed” is “b” so that is the first letter shape. We know that the last sound in the word “bed” is “d” so that is the last letter shape.


We can also make a bed shape with our hands. Our first thumb makes the “b” shape and our other thumb makes the “d” shape. Handy when you want to do a quick check as you’re writing or reading!
