Last year a Kindergarten teacher, at our school wrote a grant and provided all the teachers copies of "The Bucket Filler" book. It was mid-year and all I did was read the book and stick it on a shelf. This year I decided to use some of the ideas that Tina Adamson, shared to kick off the year on a positive note with my new fourth grade class.
I read the book and had the children brainstorm ways they could be bucket fillers. I set up a bucket filler station with library pockets where they can put notes when they see someone filling a bucket or had someone fill their bucket. I told the children once everyone's buckets were full (at least one slip) that they would be passed out and shared. Not sure how this will go.
Here are the forms that I use. I created the web and I got the second sheet from mrswheelerblogspot.com. The third sheet was from Pinterest.
