Why Is Empathy Important?

Empathy is truly amazing. It acts as a secret weapon that helps us connect with others on a deeper level and show them that we care. Being there for friends during tough times can make a huge difference. Empathy is the key to improving communication, reducing drama and increasing happiness. The best thing is that empathy is within everyone’s reach! By teaching your students about the importance of empathy, you can contribute to making the world a kinder and more inclusive place for all.

Looking For Books on Empathy? Try Out Our Printable Reader!

We understand that sometimes it is hard to get all of the necessary social emotional skills into your day, so that is why Teach Starter has created a printable mini-book suitable for year 1 and year 2 students. This book can make a great addition to a reading centre, used as a partner reading activity or even sent home with students as supplemental material to use at home.

This teacher-created resource is comprised of 12 pages that lead students through a simple story to help them discover the meaning of empathy. When printing, you will notice that there are two copies per page to save on printing. After printing, cut the pages in half, stack the pages in numerical order and staple along the left side of the booklet.
