Help your pupils to understand forgiveness, how to give it and how to feel it. You might want to try this exercise; it works with all grade levels. What would you do if someone pushed you from behind? Many kids say they would yell, or push them back, or ask why they did it or explain how rude that was. Then ask your students how they would feel if they discovered the person pushing them was blind? You'll see it in their eyes - it is an immediate shift to compassion - the point of forgiveness. Pushing is no longer an issue; and instead they find themselves wanting to help the other person. This "scenario" makes for great discussions on the wonderful love Jesus had for everyone.
