    What Makes Someone ‘Great’? 

    The story you are reading this year, The Magic Hockey Stick, is about a young girl who comes into possession of Wayne Gretzky’s hockey stick after her parents win it at an auction. She becomes her hockey’s team’s star player with it. Meanwhile, “The Great One” goes into the greatest slump of his career.

    What makes someone great?

      Our grade 4/5 class at Sir Isaac Brock brainstormed today about what makes someone important. From there, we talked about different people in history and sports who have blazed a path.

    Have you ever been to a hockey game? Was there a fight on the ice? Why does it happen? What happens to players who fight? Why do they fight? Is it right? How do you feel about it? Should it continue or should they not allow it at all?

    Wow! That’s a lot of questions! We would love to hear your thoughts about fighting in Hockey. Please write your ideas and thoughts below by clicking the Reply link.

      I am really excited about this art. I am fascinated by how pieces of hockey equipment could be reused to create such beautiful work. I can honestly say that I have never thought of hockey equipment as beautiful. What an awesome way to take materials designed for one purpose and turn them into something completely different.

    The puck paintings (click the link above) are made by shooting hockey pucks at a white, goal-size (4’ x 6’) surface. Permission by the artist to post has been granted.  The puck rubber leaves different marks based on the speed and angle of the shot, and compositions are determined by building up the density of shots in particular areas of the painting’s surface.

        The author made me sympathize , with Paul a canada hockey fan watching Canada vs the silviot union, and not having his dad, who loves hockey with him. Not being able to watch with Paul. I felt sad for Paul because I would like my family with me. And I felt happy at the end when Paul got to watch one of the games with his WHOLE family. That was a touching story that I like!

        The story is told from Paul’s point of view. It helps you relate to Paul and what he is feeling. You feel sad for him when his dad has to go away on a work trip and when Canada was losing the tournament. He had felt so confident that Canada would win but it was starting to look like the Soviet Union would win. I felt sorry for him when the coach was telling him to pass the puck and he wanted to talk to his dad but his dad was away working.

      we read this book today and i thought it was good and i think that the author’s message is to never give up.I think that because when paul said that there is no use for canada the mom said there is still time paul didn’t belive her and paul gave up on team canada during the sumit series but team canada ended up winning.

      I like how he practices with his grandpa then learns how to be a better goalie. Then he imagined himself as Jacques Plante talking to Toe Blake. Hoping he would be a great goalie ready to learn anything that would help him be a better goalie! 🙂
