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.

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.
