Has anyone noticed 5th graders can be soooo mean? I have and so I decided to do this month's classroom guidance lesson on Filling Our Buckets! I created a How to Fill Your Bucket video based on the book Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?



After watching the How to Fill Your Bucket video, we had a great discussion on examples of Bucket Filling and Bucket Dipping.  We also talked about putting a lid on our bucket to protect it when people are trying to dip from it.  When putting a lid on our bucket we can ignore, walk away, hang out with other friends, etc.

                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Then we made our own invisible buckets out of clear cups and chenille sticks.  I gave each student 50 compliments that they could cut and use to fill each others' buckets. 


 The kids absolutely LOVED it! And reading the compliments definitely filled our buckets!
