As a 1st grade teacher in East New York, Brooklyn, I try my best to get all the days work in. While studying social studies, one of my students said, Where is New York? as I shockingly turned my head. I posed the same question to the students in their chairs. My question was met with confused looks and blank stares. When one of my students shouted, "We all live in New York", with disbelief, I thanked him for his answer and gave a sigh of relief. Still puzzled that my students hardly knew about their state, I needed to write a proposal and it just couldn't wait! I am requesting books in which New York is the theme, For my students to explore, learn from and dream. Thank you so much for your consideration and good deed, Please remember our class, its books about New York we desperately need! :) Thanks again for your consideration.
