Being Bucket Fillers

Since the first few weeks of school, we have been studying Kindness. This unit has taught us about generosity, how to be a kind friend, and how to fill buckets. Your child may have already used the terminology of being a "bucket filler" or a "bucket dipper" at home. We read two books, titled Have You Filled a Bucket Today? and How Full Is Your Bucket? Both of these stories explain that everyone has an invisible bucket. It is our choice to fill these buckets or dip out of them. When we do kind things to others, we fill their bucket while also filling our own. When we are unkind, we dip out of people's buckets. We are really focusing on filling buckets in Room 4 and today we made some awesome crowns to celebrate!
