Experience The Excitement With Big Books!

My students need big books to experience the fun of reading, including ten big books about community helpers that I know my students will love.

My Students

The children in my class are amazing! They are amazing because of the enthusiasm and love they show for learning. I have 3 and 4 year old students. Some have special abilities and some are typically developing. It is an all-day class and is in session 5 days a week.

If students are engaged in meaningful and exciting materials, they stay engaged and develop their love of learning.

I try to change the materials so they don't get bored and they stay involved. They love the different centers and choices they have to interact with each other. They are ready for a new adventure in learning.

My Project

There are books and then there are Big Books! Big books are exciting in that they allow the children to experience the sensory part of them. Large print and big colorful pictures will grab any child's attention.

Big books are fun and easily shared with friends.

They can lay the books down on the rug while on their stomachs and enjoy the thrill of the story.

Having new big books will definitely gain the interest of my students. They will want to look at the large print and pictures and listen while it is read to them. I can't wait to see their faces!
