    Do you find that most schools provide a stash of big books for use in K-2 or have you had to buy a lot of your own? In the school I student taught in, the school had provided literally hundreds of big books for the K-2 classrooms. You could just take the ones you wanted and then return them when you were done. Is this typical, or are those teachers just really lucky?

    Also, how much do big books usually cost? And where do you buy them?

    Where to buy them? Well I notice you are in No. Va. (me too!).
    There are a few teacher stores around here. Lakeshore Learning in Alexandria is a great store. And they offer teacher discounts and specials with their teacher card. Maybe check some of the outlet malls (Potomac Mills?) or others for the bookstores there to see if they have any. Ebay, Craigslist etc. too.

    I haven't check the public libraries for them, but they may have them, not sure.

    Cost will just depend on where you get them etc. You can also get them from Scholastic.
