    • When he first stepped out on the ice and his feet got in a muddle?
    • When Sally yelled at him?
    • When his mother said he could go to the ice dancing competition?
    • When he first saw the ice dancing?

    • Why do you think he kept trying?
    • How do you think he felt when he succeeded?
    • Have you ever really wanted to do something that was difficult?
    • Did you feel like giving up but you kept on trying?

    Literacy Activity with Character Education tie ins 

    Henry Holton Takes the Ice

    A Lesson Plan for Teachers and Educators

    Curriculum tie-ins: Literacy and Character Education

    Author:  Sandra Bradley

    Illustrator:  Sara Palacios

    Summary:  Henry Holton’s family is hockey mad.  Every one, that is, except Henry.  When he holds a hockey stick, Henry becomes a menace to the game and his family is devastated.  It’s not until he sees his first ice dancing performance that Henry realizes there’s something he can do on the ice that doesn’t involve slap shots and body checking.  But now, Henry has to convince his hockey crazy family to let him follow his own path . . .

    Before we read, let’s look at:

    The cover:  Can you predict what the story will be about based on the title and cover illustration?

    Cultural context:  Why do you think the author chose to write a book about hockey?  Do you think that if she was from another country, she might have chosen to write about a different sport?  Discuss how culture shapes our schema.

    Building Empathy:  As we read, let’s think about how Henry might be feeling at different stages in the story.

    While we read:

    Monitoring comprehension:

    • Why is Henry’s sister furious? Why are his parents devastated?
    • What does MENACE mean?
    • What do you think ICE MAGIC means?
    • What does Henry mean when he says, “I wasn’t meant for boarding and body checking?”

    Using the Glossary of Hockey Terms:

    • What is a glossary?
    • How does a glossary help the reader?

    After we read:

    Discussion questions with a focus on building empathy:

    How do you think Henry felt at these points in the story:

    • When he first stepped out on the ice and his feet got in a muddle?
    • When Sally yelled at him?
    • When his mother said he could go to the ice dancing competition?
    • When he first saw the ice dancing?
    • When his father said “We’re a hockey family, Henry . . . a HOCKEY FAMILY!”
    • When his grandmother showed him the photo?
    • When his grandmother gave him her old skates?
    • When his dad introduced him to his coach?

    Discussion questions with a focus on determination:

    It took Henry sixty-nine tries before he could dash like down the ice, spin like a top, and finish with one foot high in the air.

    • Do you think Henry ever felt like giving up?
    • Why do you think he kept trying?
    • How do you think he felt when he succeeded?
    • Have you ever really wanted to do something that was difficult?
    • Did you feel like giving up but you kept on trying?
    • What kept you going?
    • How did you feel when you accomplished your goal?
