Our November lesson is on social awareness and building empathy and compassion.
We began by watching a fun Sesame Street video that defines Empathy (below).
To further our students' understanding of empathy, we read a book and used the Mood Meter to identify how the characters were feeling.
K-2nd: The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig
3rd: The Invisible Boy, by Trudy Ludwig and follow up lesson with The Judgmental Flower, but Julia Cook
4th: Stand in My Shoes by Bob Sornson
*5th Grade will receive October's Lesson on Emotion Regulation due to Live Oak
If time allowed at the end of the lesson, students read scenarios and used their Empathy Detective skills to decide how the person would feel using the Mood Meter.
Parents, please download the files below to continue a conversation about empathy and compassion at home.
