Say “Hockey!” because that’s what Ms. Visentin's Grade 2 students at Holy Cross all love. Many of the girls and boys in our class play hockey and they all know that winning and losing is all about “teamwork”, on and off the ice. Students enjoyed listening to and reading a collection of hockey books, especially Mike Leonetti's hockey hero series which was based on Roch Carrier’s “The Hockey Sweater”, the first book which the students shared in class. It was a wonderful way to bring into our discussions The Leader In Me Habit #4 Think Win-Win, elements of a good story and a lot of Canadian history. While we started with the read aloud of “The Hockey Sweater” , the students celebrated our wrap up by watching the movie based on this very book.
