Help Your Child Write b and d Correctly


Why do young children so often mix similar letters or write letters and numbers back to front?

The explanation that I've been taught is that young children see things in 3D. It doesn't matter which way it's flipped or rotated, to them it's still the same letter. They haven't yet learnt to see things flat in 2D on paper. They have yet to learn that when things are written down they remain fixed and cannot be rotated or flipped.

Take the b and d as an example. My prekinders get the b and d mixed up all the time; 'dad' is usually written as 'bad' or 'bab' or 'dab'. Poor ol' dad!

3 Free Eid ul Adha Cards to Download


Eid is around the corner so download these cards to colour and give.

 These are cards so print them onto A4 or legal size paper or cardstock and fold in half. Then colour and decorate and write a message inside. 

There are three levels: easy, intermediate and hard. Hard just means that there are many lines and details to colour so it'll be more suitable for older children, teenagers and adults. But don't limit yourself, just pick the one that you like or do them all!
