Seeds of Compassion is pleased to offer these resources for educators to use in the classroom for all grade levels. We hope that they will serve as an incentive for teachers and school administrators to further social and emotional skill development through implementation of a more extensive, evidence-based program.
Grade-Specific Compassion Lessons
These introductory lessons on compassion are designed to increase the awareness and knowledge of children in grades kindergarten through second grades. The lessons are intended to help students understand their experience of Children and Youth Day, April 14, 2008. They can also serve as a foundation for a deeper focus on compassionate action within the classroom and the school.
We've compiled several lists of books that we think parents and educators can use to share, explain, and deepen the understanding of compassion teachings with the children in their lives.
