PHONIC FACE CARDS. The 42 multicultural faces show the letter-to-sound relationship for 42 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.
