When my son is writing his spelling words he is having trouble with his lowercase B's and D's. He knows how to verbally spell words but when he writes them, he gets his b's and d's backwards. Do you have an easy way to explain this to him?
How old is he? My son did this in K and 1, and I asked the teacher about it. She said not to worry about it unless he's still doing it by grade 3. (He wasn't!)
There are a couple of suggestions in here that might work.
He is in the first grade. His teacher told me the same thing. It is really bothering him. I guess I just need to be patient.
I found a great little poem that I really think will help him. "Line then circle is the letter B circle then line is the letter D". Thanks for the link. I gotta remember this site.
You're very welcome! I'm sure he'll be fine. =)
