Have you Filled a Bucket Today?

Have you ever read this book?

It's such a wonderful book that helps kids visualize how their words and actions affect other people.
It talks about how positive words and actions will 'fill' someone's bucket with happiness and good feelings and how negative words and actions will 'empty' buckets.  It encourages children to be 'bucket fillers' and not 'bucket dippers'.  These simple words, descriptions, and pictures seem to really connect with children and we frequently use these terms to encourage positive behavior with our kids. 


I had the opportunity to read this book and do a 'Bucket Filling' activity with Sarah's Daisy group last week.  All the girls were so attentive to the book and were more than willing to contribute bucket filling ideas.

After the book was read they each decorated a silver bucket with their name and some colorful stickers.  

Finally, they filled out these note cards for each member of the Daisy group so that every girl would bring home a bucket full of positive 'bucket filling' notes. 


You can find this printable and more at What the Teacher Wants.

Remember to ask yourself at the end of each day.....
"Did I fill a bucket today?"
