Empathy Quote Bulletin Board


Empathy is our character education theme for October. I wanted to create a visual display somewhere related to empathy, and thought that one of the remaining "free" windows of the counseling suite would be the perfect place.

Jen, a school counseling intern who is working with my co-counselor, found a great quote related to empathy. We created a colorful bulletin board on the windows to the left of the entrance of the school counseling office area. I love how it turned out!


To make the bulletin board, I typed the quote into Google Docs using the font "Luckiest Guy." We printed the words on plain white paper, cut them with a paper cutter, and then glued the words to black cardstock or colorful cardstock. We made the word "EMPATHY" using my Cricut paper cutter.

Tip: If you use 12 x 12 cardstock and cut it in half with a paper cutter, the cardstock will be the perfect size for gluing on the words!

I created a Google Doc so you can print the whole quote! Click on the words below to for access to the Google Doc.
*Note - the original quote states "listening" instead of hearing. I didn't realize until after we were done gluing and hanging everything that I wrote "hearing" instead of "listening." I was going to fix it, but then we didn't have enough space to put listening, so we left it as is. If you would rather put "hearing" like the bulletin board we created, you can save a copy of the file and edit it in Google docs.

Do you host different character education themes each month at your school? How to you create programming around the theme or support the theme at your school?
