Mrs. Stambaugh's Classroom Guidance

5th Grade-September

Empathy and Respect

Learning Target: I can define and give examples of empathetic and respectful behaviors.

Lesson: This month, your student will learn what empathy is and how having empathy for others allows us to be respectful and act in a thoughtful way. Students will notice that when they have appropriate empathy and respect for others and treat others they way they want to be treated, in turn others will treat your student the way they would like to be treated.

Application: Ask your student to define what empathy means (remind them to use the body motions to help). Talk about real life examples that happen in the home within the family regarding empathy.
