On October 10th, 4th Class Room 3 started the Roots of Empathy program. The class met Martina and her baby son Riain. He is 3 months and 1 week old. They had a great time interacting with him, singing him songs and watching him on the green mat!
For the rest of the year, Martina and Riain will come in every 3 weeks. They girls will watch him grow and change, and learn how babies communicate their wants and needs nonverbally. They will also learn about caring for a baby. The program will also on their feelings and the feelings of others, and help to develop their empathy.
Room 3 are really excited to watch Riain develop and grow! The girls have predicted that he might be able to roll over by the next time he comes in!
