Baby Diapers: b and d reversals

We all know that b and d reversals are developmentally appropriate for young learners.  However, we use a little humor to help remind us.

We use our hands to make the shape of "b" and "d".

Of course we don't say, "diaper baby!"  Whenever I want a student to check their letters, I tell them, "Check your baby diapers."  This always makes them giggle.


  1. OMG! Thank you for posting this! I LOVE IT!!! It is my first year teaching and I am having the hardest time trying to explain this to my firsties. I will defintely be putting this to good use!


  2. My kiddos are STILL messing up b and d! We did a huge lesson at the beginning of the year about "bubbles" and "dipping dots" (ice cream) and how bubbles go out of the mouth and dipping dots go into your mouth but obviously they didn't get it. I'm going to try this!

  3. THIS IS SOOOO PERFECT! I'M over the whole, "put your d's to bed!" How cute!!!!!!!

  4. I LOVE it!!! Thanks so much for sharing!! I can't wait to introduce it to my kiddos tomorrow!!

  5. So cute! My kiddos giggle every time they hear the word underpants - so I am sure the baby diapers will produce a gaggle of giggles! Great idea!

  6. So clever - my kids will love this! They love any "bathroom" talk especially the word underwear!

  7. This is EXACTLY what I needed right now!!!!!! Thanks so much for posting! The picture was very helpful! :)

  8. Oh!!! It makes me smile to know you all found this helpful.


    My little guy was so excited to be my hand model. :-)
