Kindness Club Explores Empathy

kindness get well card
Today in kindness club we learned about empathy. Empathy is when you are able to understand how someone else is thinking or feeling.
We talked about how putting ourselves in someone else shoes can help us to imagine what a person may be going through. We also learned why having empathy is important because it helps you know how to respond to other people. 
We took the time to learn about a friend who is in the hospital waiting to get surgery. We asked the question, "How do you think this person might feel?" They might feel scared, lonely, worried and sad.
The kindness club made get well cards and wrote words of encouragement and understanding in hopes to lift her spirits up.
