I wanted to share a little more about bucket fillers. The concept of being a bucket filler is based on the metaphor that we all carry around an invisible bucket that contains our feelings. When we have a full bucket we feel good, and when our bucket is empty we feel sad. We all have a choice to be a bucket filler or bucket dipper. A bucket filler says or does nice things for others, and a bucket dipper says or does mean things to others. Many teachers and schools have taken this idea and run with it to encourage students to kind to others by being bucket fillers. This is the book I read first as an introduction to the idea of being a bucket filler.
Since my library pocket cards haven't come in I don't have any pictures of what I plan to use this year, but I do have a couple pictures from last year.
