Recount of Mara's "Roots of Empathy" lesson
In Room 8 a women named Nicole came for a visit. She taught us about changing a baby’s nappy. She brought a nappy bag and a plastic bag. She also brought Baby Cooper along with his mum called Alene. We had to sit Baby Cooper on the mat. We sang the welcome song called “Hello Baby Cooper and how you are?” when baby Cooper entered our classroom.
We compared the disposable nappy with the cloth nappy. We discussed in groups about which one costs more, which one is more comfortable and the one that is more convenient to use.
After a group discussion, we realised that although the disposable nappy costs more, it is more comfortable and convenient to use. Then we went back on the mat and sang a goodbye song to Baby Cooper. We get to touch his toes while singing this song. We have lots of fun with during our “Roots of Empathy” lesson especially with Baby Cooper.
