This versatile set of 40 images is meant to illustrate and personify the most common phonics rules to help students remember them more easily. I use them in my classroom for class posters and anchor charts, as well as on printables practicing various phonics skills.

You will receive everything pictured on the cover, as well as the 16 blackline versions.

This set includes:

*Bossy E (pointing at the vowel to say it's own name)
*Sneaky E (hand over lips and tip-toeing)
*Magic E (with wizard hat and magic wand pointing back to the vowel)
*Super E (added as a free update!)

Bossy r lowercase (R-controlled vowels)
