************ Teacher Feedback ************

  1. “I really enjoyed this resource! I will definitely be looking into the bundles next year depending on my grade assignment!”
  2. “I purchased this mainly because it is one of my favourite books as well as for the fun way literary devices are included. There is so much more than that in this unit. Going from primary to junior I have been having trouble getting the students to dive into books a little more and this unit outlines how to do that. I especially love the text examples because we all know students need a lot of practice with citing their evidence from the text.”
  3. “The students really enjoyed reading this book because of the hockey connection and activities were well done.”
  4. “This is a great resource. It is very easy to follow.”
