SCARCE Has Books for Lower Reading Level

"I am the teacher of a 3rd-5th grade special education classroom. My students have a variety of learning styles, strengths and challenges. SCARCE has been a valuable source of a variety of educational materials for my students. For example, we have used science books at a lower reading level to support their learning in the general education classroom. Besides having a lower reading level, those books present the material in a simplified way that supports their understanding."
