Social-Emotional Learning is more important than ever and having quality lesson plans and activities makes it so much easier to build into your curriculum. These units were developed to support YOU in teaching, modeling and reinforcing great character. This resource focuses on EMPATHY and is part of a year-long social-emotional curriculum. This resource can be used as a stand-alone resource or in conjunction with the other units.
In this packet, you will find 4 detailed lesson plans on empathy, as well as additional printables and resources!
Lesson 1-What is Empathy?
Your class will watch a short video explaining empathy in kid-friendly language and then you'll discuss what empathy means and create an anchor chart about it. Then you'll read different situations and students will share how the person might feel with their shoulder partner. After your discussion, students will draw and write about showing empathy.
Lesson 2-How Can I Show Empathy To A Friend?
Your class will discuss various situations and ask, "how would that feel," and "how can I help?" I've included situation cards for you about situations that your kiddos might encounter or you can choose your own. Then students will draw and write about a time something happened to someone they know and how they showed empathy.
Lesson 3-Does it Sound Empathetic?
Students will sort things people might say as that shows empathy and that does NOT show empathy. Then students will write examples of things that show empathy.
Lesson 4-How Can I Support Others?
You and your class will talk about how we can support others when they are struggling. Examples include say encouraging words, listen or writing a letter. After the lesson, students will write about how they can support each other.
