Week Three Quality - Empathy

Make Someone's Day by Showing Empathy

The quality that we are focussing on to help us show our value, Make Someone's Day, is Empathy.  

To help our learning and understanding of what empathy is and how we can feel it and show it, we used this slide in our learning phase.


  1. Kia Ora Rimu.
    Im Ella from Grey Main School.
    I love to show empathy.
    I love how you have put exiting videos in of people showing empathy.
    I love the sesame Street one.
    Na Ella

  2. Kia ora It looks like you do know how to show empathy wow you guys are so hardworking you are always do your bloggings
    for people to comment on your hardwork! Na Rodeshar.

  3. Kia ora Rimu class, Jake here Empathy is an important thing to know about because it's good to know how someone else feels just incase that had happened to you once. I love the one with the dog because the dod knows how the kid is feeling and the kid knows how the dog is feeling.
    One thing I don't get if Empathy means feeling how someone else feels then what dose simpathy mean.
    Bye for now Rimu.
