‘Hockey Night in Trenton’ at V.P. Carswell Elementary School
It was ‘Hockey Night in Trenton’ when V.P. Carswell Elementary School students and staff hosted a literacy night for the school community. It was based on the book The Hockey Tree by David Ward. Special guests were hockey players from the Trenton Golden Hawks who read with children, demonstrated hockey skills and autographed pucks. In preparation for the event, students made their own personal trading cards to share with their parents. It was a fitting way to illustrate their understanding of non-fiction writing.
