As part of adding "heart" to class, we share stories, bring in special guests like Molly and John (see previous posts) and listen to music with caring lyrics and messages. Songs like "Happy" might be suggested by students. We also listen to deeper songs like the one below, which I brought in to help students think of others. I think it connects with all of us.
