Empathy Through Pages: Nurturing Social Emotional Learning
School: Beacon Tree
"Empathy through the Pages" seeks to create a nurturing environment by integrating good quality children's literature into the curriculum. By leveraging the power of carefully selected books, storytelling, and creative events like "Feeling Fridays", we aim to foster empathy, emotional intelligence, and positive social interactions among the students. The objectives we hope to achieve would be to provide a diverse book collection to use to address various social and emotional themes such as kindness, empathy, friendship, resilience, and self-acceptance. The books will reflect diverse cultures, backgrounds, and experiences, promoting inclusivity, and understanding. During Feeling Fridays, these books will be used to springboard our peer empathy circles where students can share their feelings and experiences in a safe and supportive environment. By immersing students in the world of empathetic literature, we aim to shape compassionate individuals who contribute positively to their world.
