Target Words:

  • trace
  • face
  • case
  • space
  • place

Materials:

  • Face parts graphics (see below)
  • Face Case label—put on a case with the face parts inside (see below)
  • Paper plates

Overview
The children will trace a space for a face and practice saying words that rhyme with face, such as case, space, and place.  

Practice the skill within an activity
Trace and Place a Face in a Space

  • Have the children trace the paper plate onto the paper in order to make a face outline.
  • Invite the children to choose a face part from the container labelled Face Case.
  • Ask the children if face and case rhyme.
  • Have the children place a face part in an empty space of their traced face.
  • Allow the children to choose three more face parts to place on their face.
  • Tell the children to put glue or tape on the back of each face part and place them onto the face.
  • Have the children help make a list of all the words that rhyme with face that they heard throughout the activity (i.e. trace, case, space, place).

Apply the Skill
Produce words that rhyme with face.

  • Remind the children of the words they played with (trace, face, case, place, space).
  • Tell them you can think of other words that rhyme with face (chase, base, lace).  
  • Ask each child to think of a word that rhymes with face
  • If a child doesn't respond in a few seconds, give him or her an option:  
    • "How about pace?"  "Does pace rhyme with face?" (Nod your head yes.) 
    • "Do race and face rhyme?" (Nod your head yes.)

Recognize rhyming words 

  • Have the children repeat a set of two words (e.g. face, trace)
  • Ask the children to put their hands on their face if the words rhyme and keep their hands down if the words do not rhyme. 
  • Repeat with other sets of words: (e.g., space, place; race, cow; base, case; vase, door; chase, pace).
  • If children do not respond correctly, repeat the two words, emphasizing the ending sounds of the words.
