The 42 multicultural faces show
the letter-to-sound relationship for the speech sounds
of English. The 'L' looks like an elevated
tongue, the 'p' looks like a lip. Children
imitate the mouth positions and can begin
successfully sounding out words, even those
who have poor phonemic awareness. Use
Phonic Faces to learn the alphabet, find
sounds in word positions, rhyme, blend, spell,
learn phonic rules, and as a visual cue to
sound production in articulation therapy. Use with LiPs to tie the written letter to the mouth position.
Proven in 2 control group studies presented at
ASHA(Doyle 2002; Hoffman & Nettleton, 2006) to show significantly greater improvement in articulation and 10 forms of phonemic awareness and print knowledge compared
to a control group receiving alternate treatment!
Phonic Faces Cards are available in three sizes
Standard (3.5" by 4") Large (5" by 7") Classroom (11" by 11")
The Phonic Faces Manual explains how to introduce each Phonic Face, and provides detailed teaching activities for letter/sound, phonemic awareness, and phonics learning.
The Phonic Faces Kit includes Standard Size Cards, a Phonic Faces Manual, and Summary Sheet of all of the Phonic Faces.
The Phonic Faces Train provides a framework for visualizing the initial consonant, vowel and final consonant of words. It comes with an explanation of teaching activities.
