Trace a Face
Recognize words that rhyme with face (e.g. "Do trace and face rhyme?") and produce rhyme words (e.g. "Think of a word that rhymes with face").
- Face parts graphics (see below)
- Face Case label—put on a case with the face parts inside (see below)
- Paper plates
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.
SEEL At Home
Recognize and produce words that rhyme face.
- Black marker
- Tape (optional)
Activity: Trace a Face
- Draw a large face on a blank piece of paper using a black marker.
- Have your child put a blank piece of paper over the face drawing then hold or tape both pieces against a window so that the face can be seen through the top sheet.
- Allow your child to trace the face onto the top sheet of paper.
- Together think of words that rhyme with -ace and list them next to or around the traced face.
- The activity can be repeated several times.
