Activity #4: “Apologizing”

This activity teaches the social skill of apologizing. Students will learn ways to tell others in a sincere, genuine manner that they are sorry for doing something that caused a problem. As students create a ridicule-free classroom, there will be times when students make mistakes or realize that they have said something hurtful or disrespectful and need to apologize.


  • Chart Paper
  • Felt Pen
  • Apology Steps poster (provided)
  • Is it Sincere? situation cards (provided)
  • When and To Whom? situation cards (provided)
  • When and To Whom? worksheet (provided)

Teacher Preparation:

  • Print and cut out the Is It Sincere? cards.
  • Print and cut out the When and to Whom? cards.
  • Print enough When and To Whom worksheets for each student.


Step by Step:

Step One: Discuss with the students how the characters in the story realized that they were being very hurtful and how one of the ways to make up for their behaviour was to apologize. Discuss the various ways that the characters tried to apologize to Pinduli.

Step Two: Discuss with the students how difficult it might be for someone to apologize. On chart paper, write two headings: Person who makes the mistake AND Person who receives the apology. Brainstorm how a person might be feeling before apologizing (E.g. – anxious, afraid, nervous, worried, etc). Write these ideas under the first heading. Discuss how a person might be feeling receiving an apology (E.g. – relieved, less upset, appreciative, thankful, etc.)

Step Three:  Talk about the importance of being sincere in the apology.

Is it Sincere? Situation Cards

1. Divide the students into groups of four. Provide each group with a ‘Is it Sincere’ situation card. Have them discuss whether or not the situation demonstrates if the person is being sincerely sorry.

2. If the words or the actions are not sincere in the situation, students are to come up with new actions or words that do display being sincerely sorry. Students could re-write or cross out words/actions on the card and add their own.

3. Once each group has had a chance to discuss among themselves, have each group report to the class with the decisions they made, based on their specific situation.

When and To Whom to Apologize

1. Divide the students into groups of four. Provide each group with a couple of ‘When and To Whom’ situation cards and also a ‘When and to Whom’ worksheet for discussion.

2. To complete their worksheets, have the students decide and record when and to whom they would apologize.

3. Have each group come up with a real situation in the classroom and then complete the table, indicating who would apologize and when.
