EveryFriday afternoon, we have “BUCKET FILLER FRIDAY” time.The students really look forward to this every week, even though it only lasts about 5 minutes!During the week, students fill out bucket slips for one another with positive comments to acknowledge that person’s great effort or kind deeds during the week.Students are called a few at a time to empty their buckets and read the positive comments that others have written to them. They pack up quickly, hoping to be the first to be called.
Making a chart or writing down ideas together as a class about what makes a bucket filler can be a good first week activity to do with your class. Then they can know what behavior is expected and how they can show they are being kind.
Whole class room management ideas. Raffle Ticket Reward System - Sometimes students get into bad habits like blurting out comments or getting out of their seats without permission. They need something tangible to remind them to follow the classroom procedures. I have found that using raffle tickets helps tremendously.
