Ways to use Cartoons and Comics in the classroom

Cartoons are a way to have students link words to their own meaning. When they have the ability to link vocabulary to pictorial supports that they create, it has meaning and they can recall.

You can also use picture supports to help with compound words. Print the cartoons on business cards. Such as fire truck and students put the words together.
