There are several tricks to add a visual or some type of reminder to b and d formations. My favorite is pictured below.
A very dear friend and coworker showed me the b (bat before the ball) and d (dish before the knife) visual during my first year working in first grade. I created a set of posters to illustrate this little trick.
If you would like a FREE copy of these posters, click on one of the pictures below.
I hope these posters can be of use to you. For more ideas on how to get lower case b and lower case d across to your students, check out Pinterest.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
