Empathy

Clip to ScrapBook #8

And acting

Much of what kids say and do is in response to us. I would also consider that your values and theirs don't have yo match

For me I am grateful when i lose something and then regain it.

Maybe do an "electricity went out" game day.

Have them live in the classroom without power for a day.

You could do a "teacher lost her voice" day

Bread n water...

One of my favorite teachers used to respond to kids asking for a trip to the water fountain with, "how many days can you go without water?"

You can model empathy.
