Our second topic was about empathy. Students learned that being empathetic means putting yourself in someone else's shoes. We talked about what it means to relate to others by asking "How do you think the individual is feeling in the following situations?"
- a friend is waiting at the airport for her mom to arrive
- it's the end of a very, very long car ride
- today is her birthday party
- his dog passed away last night
I'm waiting for this book to be delivered so I can read it to the boys and girls. It comes highly recommended!
In the meantime, the boys and girls can enjoy reading and learning from the many books we have in our classroom library. Each book presents the reader with an opportunity to respond with empathy.
