Vanilla Vocabulary®

 

Visualizing and Verbalizing® Vanilla Vocabulary Levels 1 (Grades 1-3) and 2 (Grades 4-6) develop beginning and intermediate level vocabulary with imagery. Each word is defined and used in sentences for the individual to visualize and verbalize. The read-aloud Gunny and Ivan Adventures books Ivan Sleeps Over (Level 1) and Ivan, King of the Neighborhood (Level 2) were written to include the words in context, while presenting the hilarious adventures of Ivan the Cat and his human Gunny.

Use Vanilla Vocabulary with the Visualizing and Verbalizing program, or on its own, to increase vocabulary skills in adults or children. Each entry also includes a section for the individual to compose their own sentence, along with four sentences to create meaning and imagery for each word. Vanilla Vocabulary is a must-have resource for students with low vocabulary and English Language Learners!
