Review: Vocabulary Cartoons

I got to review an awesome book!!!  It’s Vocabulary Cartoons, SAT Word Power from New Monic Books selling  for $12.95.  We used book #1 and I am so excited that there is a second book!!!    Vocabulary Cartoons, SAT Word Power is geared toward 7th to 12th grade students to learn words for the SATs.  Each word is presented with a cartoon picture and  short explanation to help you remember the word.  New Monic Books uses visual mnemonics to help you retain the meaning of each word.  Each of the 29 lessons contains 10 words.  At the end of the lesson there is a short review of these words.

Example:

ACCRUE
(ah KROO) v.
to accumulate over time
Link: A CREW

“Pirates know how to ACCRUE A CREW.”

Bryan’s unpaid parking tickets ACCRUED to the point
they would have paid for his college tuition.

New Monic Books also provides vocabulary mnemonics for younger children.   Vocabulary Cartoons, Elementary Edition (3-6 grades) and Picture Speller for Young Readers (K-2 grade).   They also offer  teacher’s resources for a large classroom setting  including PDF formatted disks, black line masters and overhead transparencies.

We found the process of learning vocabulary words in this format so much fun!  Our daily vocabulary has expanded and the kids will actually remember them when they take their SATs.

Vocabulary Cartoons, SAT Word Power was provided free for my review, as a member of the TOS Crew.  I also state that the opinion is my honest opinion, and I was not reimbursed in any other way.

    We love these books too! We just finished the Elementary Edition this summer with 10 year old dd. We used it all last year, doing 3-4 per week. LOVE that she retains the meaning long after learning and recognizes the words in her reading and when she hears them! Started the first of the older books a few weeks ago. 🙂
