From Miss Amber

In January, Bancroft is focusing on EMPATHY - what it means, why it’s important and how we can show EMPATHY to those around us! As we are coming out of a month of giving to others it is important to continue to practice what being empathic is. Learning empathy happens best when it is done both at school and at home. When practicing empathy, students can understand their classmates and others in the world around them. In the classroom, children build friendships and engage in teamwork situations that expose them to other people’s point of views. It is important to understand the difference between empathy and sympathy.  Later this week I will be out at lunch to do an activity with the students to help them understand empathy more.  Be sure to ask them how they show empathy!

Bancroft is still working hard at attendance!  For every class that has 95% attendance (or higher) they will receive popcorn and the highest class will receive a free recess with me! 

As always, reach out to me if needed!
