Break-through foundational literacy barriers! Students who cannot remember how to read or spell their phonics finally learn. We shape the image of phonogram in the shapes of those letters. Students learn to read in pictures. It comes to them almost naturally!

Copyrighted, see our Terms of Use below*.

This ground-breaking work will give your new learners or struggling students the multi-sensory tools they need to win their battles. The students will hear, say, trace, and see the letters all at the same time. We short-cut the learning curve because we engage all the senses (kinesthetic, auditory, oral, visual, and tactile) to create strong neural connections to build better retention.

Our methods align with most of the principles of the Orton-Gillingham approach (Structured Literacy).

DISTANCE option: The Power Points are posted on Google Classroom and also in the package.

This brand-new packet is offered at an unbelievable value. Customize the PPTs for each class, lesson, or student. Each of the 125 phonograms is introduced with a series of slides, a flashcard, and a reading and spelling page for maximum success.

Funny Phonograms pages start with a key word/image, traceable letters with follow-the-number directions, 5-6 words to practice and a sentence.

Read in Pictures can be used in a regular classroom (independent work, literacy centers, homework), small-group intervention, one-on-one tutoring, homeschooling, or even with adult dyslexic students.

Included you will find printable activities that practice:

Pages are blackline, and can be customized for homework:

Funny Phonograms and Laughing Letters are copyrighted.

We WANT you teachers and parents to use our movable images to enhance your creative flair while you educate your students.

BUT please keep in mind that to develop our artwork and concepts, it took many years of experience, education, teaching trials, funding, reworks, and copious amounts of talent.

So, we ask you to kindly respect these guidelines while you exercise your own ingenuity. When you do, let us know! Maybe we can share your genius ideas with others.


Please feel free to use these without restraint in your own classroom or homeschool. We ask that you do not resell them or share them with other teachers or families. We keep our prices intentionally low so that many people can afford to use them.

If you republish them electronically, please only use them in a PDF format or PPTs in a way that others cannot copy and paste our work. We expect you to use them in combination with your own ideas so that it is more of a partnership rather than offering our work as though it is your own.

It is permissible to use our work as Boom Cards. Please get in touch with me first and also give credit and link to our site: www.EasyBreezyReading.com

If you would like to use our work to develop games, lessons, apps, or other products for resale, get in touch with us please. We are fair and reasonable. Thank you!
