Vocabulary Cartoons is part of a series from New Monics books to help kids increase their vocabulary or “word power.” Their motto is “Kids learn a word a minute and never forget it.” Besides the elementary level Vocabulary Cartoons book, they also offer versions for SAT readiness. Each book sells for $12.95.
How can you not learn the meaning of a word when it’s taught with cartoons as funny as these? Not only do the kids get a cartoon to visually associate with the vocabulary word, but also a common word it sounds like and a funny sentence using both to tie it all together. This method covers both visual and auditory learners, but in a way that doesn’t feel like “learning” at all. :)
My boys have been using this book for about a month now. This has been the most helpful resource I have added to our curriculum for the year. It has been a simple but fun way to increase the boys’ vocabulary. They love the cartoons and I love how well the program works. The boys really have remembered the words and their meanings and actually look forward to these lessons every week.
