CANDLER, N.C. - Dec. 6, 2016 - PRLog -- Letter Reversals are great multi-sensory activities to help students differentiate between the letters b, d, and p. These activities provide the student opportunities for focused practice. Deliberate and consistent practice will aid the student in eliminating the common b, d, and p confusion.

Focus on Skills

• Left-to-right, top to bottom, eye/hand movement
• Visual Perception
• Visual Discrimination
• Spacing
• Letter Identification b, d, and p

The Letter Reversals Set includes:

• 1 set of three control cards marked with a yellow dot
• 1 set of letters that includes lowercase b, d, and p (2 of each)
• 1 set of lines and circles (6 of each)
• Detailed teacher's guide
• Sturdy storage container

Teacher's Guide Instructions

Take one letter and hold it below the first card of the control group. If the letter matches, nod your head using an exaggerated motion and place the letter under its corresponding match. You may want to have a mat placed below your control group to help the student with placement and focus. If the letter does not match, shake your head using an exaggerated motion and turn or flip the letter until it matches.

Continue this method with the next letter as well as the last control card. Repeat the entire process with the remaining letters creating a second row.

Using the peace sign, you will touch the control cards and the first row of letters with your middle finger and your index finger. Say, alike, alike, alike as you move from left to right.

Repeat this process touching the first row and the second row. Say, alike, alike, alike.
