Product Description
This handout gives clear, explicit instructions for a child learning how to write a letter of apology. Help your students learn about empathy by thinking through the effects their actions had on another child. It may even help them improve their writing skills by using a checklist!

So instead of just missing recess and thinking about what they have done, give your students an assignment with multiple steps. It will help you assess which aspects of empathy are difficult for the child to grasp. And the result will be a more articulate apology than most children will come up with on their own. The "victim" may also be more likely to forgive the "offender's" indiscretion, which will lead to fewer conflicts.
