Teaching b vs d doesn't have to be hard.

Your child only needs to know two things. 

1. What direction you read in.  Left to right.
2. That b comes first and d comes next when saying the alphabet.  

Have your child hold up their hands as shown below.
The hands look like the letters b and d.

Imagine you are reading.  You know you always start on the left.

Say the abc's:  

a, b (left hand), c, d (right hand)...
There are many other methods for teaching b vs d but, I think this method is great because:
  • It teaches left and right.
  • It teaches how to read in the correct direction.
  • It teaches before and after and first and last.
