Last week Mrs. Edelstein, Ms. Kezer, and Ms. O'Donnell met with our second grade girls to talk about empathy and what it feels like to be connected with each other. They read the story The Invisible Boy and talked about the steps to communicating empathy. This week in class meeting, the girls taught the class about what they learned.
