If Winning Isn't Everything, Why Do I Hate to Lose?
Teach valuable life skills about winning and losing to children in grades K-6. While practicing good sportsmanship kids develop social competence in displaying empathy, showing respect, and managing strong emotions. Kelsey’s a typical fourth-grader. She likes to hang out with her friends, play games, and do all the standard stuff. But there’s one thing about Kelsey that really gets her into trouble. She is very competitive, and she HATES to lose. So much so that she is not afraid to cheat, throw a tantrum, or just act like a poor sport in general! And not only is she a sore loser, but she’s a terrible winner! Ultimately Kelsey learns that practicing good “sportsgirlship” can help her have more fun playing any game, whether she’s winning or losing! An activity guide with CD is also available. 32 pgs.
