“Wishing Well” Activity Teaches Empathy


Every morning, the children at Vogel are encouraged to notice who has come to class that day and who hasn’t. In an activity called Wishing Well, the children place photos of their absent classmates onto a big, red heart. Then they place their hands on their hearts and say “Wish you well!” This simple act of kindness teaches the children to care for their friends even when they aren’t around. What a beautiful way of demonstrating a concept that can be difficult for both children and adults!
