Roots of Empathy

The Grade 3s, Mrs. Ryan and Mrs Kirby are participating in the Roots of Empathy program! This is a wonderful year long program that teaches children about social emotional competence through experiencing the growth and development of a young baby. In this case, Baby Evan has been a fabulous teacher who has engaged the boys and girls with his pleasant disposition. In his visits, Evan demonstrates many of the early milestones of life, as he shows the children that he can crawl, stand alone, laugh, and make many different sounds!  The coach, Ms. Kirby, and Evan's Mom, have guided the children through activities that foster greater understanding of personal feelings and empathy for others. Hooray Grade 3s and Evan!
