COMPASSIONATE CURIOSITY

Kids are full of questions, and we want to nurture that curiosity. Your family can create an "I Wonder" display to hold all those questions that pop up at inconvenient moments. Then, make time to search for answers together. This printable "I Wonder..." poster will help you ask questions that encourage empathy. By curiously asking "What would it feel like to be them?" when talking about historical figures, adventures at school, or recent headlines, your family will practice understanding the way others experience the world.

Talk to your child:

  • Have you ever had a big question but felt like no one was listening?

  • When should we plan to search for answers to our "I wonder" questions?
