Kindness in the Classroom

Last week, 2F and 2G learnt about Empathy and the purpose of showing Empathy to others. We discovered that Empathy is not just about understanding someone else’s emotions but it is also about sharing that emotion and finding a way to help.

Children had to select different emotions and come up with a way that they could help people who were experiencing that feeling.

Next we read a book called “I Think, I am” by Louise Hay. It is a book that teaches us all about the power of Affirmations and positive thoughts in our day-to-day lives. 

From this we started to think about words and phrases that could change the way somebody thinks about themselves, the day they are having or feelings they may come across. We decorated different sized pebbles with kind and inspiring words. These will be displayed in our classrooms so we can refer to them when we are feeling down.
