I would like to have big books to teach my special education students vocabulary and encourage language development. These books are great for students with special education needs-they are BIG so they hold the students' attention. They are also easier to see! I am a Speech-Language Pathologist working at a school on the west side of Chicago. I work with a very diverse group of 7 students. Some students need vocabulary development while others are developing literacy skills. These books will meet the needs of ALL the students in the room. These books will provide a great learning experience in my classroom.
