Have you filled a bucket today?

Each class in grades 1 - 5 has had the opportunity to enjoy the book titled, "Have you filled a bucket today?" by Carol McCloud. Through simple words and illustrations students learn how to be happy, treat others kindly, and to be a bucket filler. By being a bucket filler (showing kindness to others through our comments and actions) we are actually spreading good cheer. However, we can also be bucket saying mean words and through teasing and ignoring others which causes us to feel sad and lonely. We discussed in each class how we can all be bucket fillers and how others have filled our buckets through their kind thoughts and deeds. Why not be a bucket filler today by showing kindess and appreciation toward others! (Check out our bulletin board outside the media center)
