Big books are one of the best ways to teach reading, and as my students continue to gain sight word vocabulary and learn the concept of word, they will be an even more intricate part of our literacy experience. We read big books all the time in a large group and individually as a literacy center. However, big books are rather large and do not fit on a regular shelf, so I have put them into a cardboard box! As the children go to the center to take out a big book to read, the box wears down more and more and falls down quite a bit. I would like for my 17 students to be able to go to this wooden big book holder and find the right book every time without worrying about whether the box will break or fall on them! This big book holder will also help them become more independent as they will actually be able to keep the holder organized and be able to find the book they are looking for quickly. Thank you for helping these five-year-olds find the perfect big book!
