Have you filled a bucket today?

Have You Filled a Bucket Today? is a GREAT book for teaching children about how our actions and words can affect each other. Last week, we had some troubles with kindness, especially at lunch and outside on the playground. I decided it was the perfect time to go back to the "bucket book," as we had not read it since the Fall. The basic premise is that we all have invisible buckets that we take along with us every day. We can fill each others' buckets through kind acts and deeds,  but we can also dip into others' buckets by being unkind. After we read the book, students brainstormed things they can do to fill each other's buckets. They came up with LOTS of wonderful ideas!
