Check it out: Knowing Our Neighborhood, by Ms. Moncada’s 3rd grade class!

Last week we gave our readers a sneak peek at the introduction to our newest student publication, Knowing Our Neighborhood, by Ms. Moncada’s 3rd grade class from PS 376, and today, you can view the book in its entirety, on our website!

All of the students in Mrs. Moncada’s class are English Language Learners, but, in conjunction with our academically rigorous programming, My Chinatown author Kam Mak’s incredible ability to draw out the student’s creativity helped them overcome their hesitation. We love seeing the final product because we know that there is something special about a physical book: it is a manifestation of that creativity. Congratulations to everyone, especially our amazing student authors!
