LOVE THIS! Not only will it fit into my tiny classroom, but it is Kindergarten appropriate. Instead of writing out what the child did to fill a bucket, he or she just adds a pom-pom. This is a great way to start "Bucket Filling" at a young age.
"Have you filled a bucket today?" Teaching how to be a bucket filler. Gave out "buckets" with "warm and fuzzies" to the class & made classmates write a nice note to their neighbor to put in each other's bucket.
If you didn't start out your year (all grade levels) discussing bucket filling, go back. it's not too late! For great anchor chart activity to go with the book: Have You Filled a Bucket Today? Teach your students compassion and empathy.
