If you are hoping to improve your kids vocabulary…or looking to add some fun into your homeschool, I totally recommend the book I am reviewing today! This aid for Vocabulary understanding and retention is hysterical. I have several kids who are thumbing through it whenever they are bored or trying to ignore other work they have to do.

The basis of the book is using the power of mnemonics to learn hundreds of SAT Words. Take a look at the graphic below for a simple explanation:

how-it-works

* In independent school tests, students with Vocabulary Cartoons learned 72% more words than students with traditional rote memory study materials and had 90% retention.

This particular book is $12.95 and is for the 7th to 12th grade level, and has 290 SAT words and includes 29 review quizzes.

We have been using this for a quick vocabulary quiz each week. If you have younger children, you can also find elementary options. I think this is a real winner. Reasonably priced, funny and easy to implement. Go to Vocabulary Cartoons to find out more.

I received the book, Vocabulary Cartoons, SAT Word Power for review purposes. I have given my honest opinion.
