I'm sure today's clever idea is not something that is new to you. But, what I loved about this graphic was the little cartoon person sleeping on the bottom picture. We've all taught kids the b and d bed trick. I even see my third graders pulling out the old thumbs once in a while. However, it wasn't until I taught it to my own 2nd grader (aka The King of Letter Reversals) that I realized it might not be a clear concept.
I showed him the trick. I modeled it. I even saw him doing it. And then weeks later he randomly said, "I get that bed starts with b and ends with d, but I don't see how this is a bed." I think the visual above would be a nice resource to add to a primary classroom.
P.S. The blog that this image came from is run by a mom, but has some great craft ideas that could be used in the classroom. Good Stuff! Check her out.
