These free printables are excellent games to reinforce phoneme awareness.
We recommend printing on heavy stock paper. Cut along the guide lines, so that you have
three piles (the middle pile is thinner than the others). We recommend a rotary cutter.

Alphabet Sheets for Practice Writing Letters

If your student needs help writing the letters of the alphabet, use the sheet below for practice.

b-d Reversal Sheet

Lowercase 'b' and 'd' are the most difficult to master, since they  have the same shape. To help remember the direction of the letters, we try to provide a framework by using the uppercase letters, 'B' and 'D', which are rarely reversed. The exercise below is often helpful in teaching the direction of the letters. This is an exercise that will need to be repeated daily for reinforcement. Simply have your student follow the instructions. In time, these reversals will diminish.

(please see our on-line letter & number reversal games > click here)

*If your student reverses a 'd', by writing a 'b', it may help to draw the upper curve to turn the 'b' into uppercase 'B'. You can also do this if he or she writes a lowercase 'b' instead of a 'd'. Turn the 'd' into a backwards uppercase 'B'. Your student will know that the letter is backwards and will realize the mistake. If you do this often enough, your student will start to do this him or herself.
