We started bucket fillers this week and the kids and I just love it. I read the book "Bucket Fillers For Kids" and then we talked about how when we say nice things we fill our friends bucket but we say mean things we are dipping in our friends bucket and it makes them feel bad. Everyone made a bucket and we made an anchor chart to help with what was appropriate to write. When they arrive in the morning and during work on writing they are aloud to write a note to their friends. On Friday they were able to look in their buckets to get their notes, they were so excited to see what their friends had written, it was so cute.
Thanks to these great bloggers for the ideas.
I got the idea for the anchor chart at Mrs. Farmers blog
I got the papers and charts from Mrs. Walker's blog
