PurposeFull People Social Emotional Learning

During the month of November, our Hillside staff will be celebrating scholars who demonstrate empathy. We will focus on learning how to describe how we feel, understanding what others are feeling, and listening to others. We would encourage our families to practice this trait at home too!

Empathy: the ability to understand and connect to the feelings of another

Think About It

Here are some questions to ask your child at home or talk about as a family:

K-2 How do you know what you are feeling? How can you tell how someone else is feeling? How do you show empathy to your friends when they are sad?

3-5 What is a conflict you have had with someone? How could you respond to that situation with empathy? What is the difference between sympathy and empathy?

Our Students of the Month for October - Cooperation
