This little packet of resources is perfect for introducing the Bucket Filler System at the beginning of the year.#Repin By:Pinterest++ for iPad#
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.
Have You Filled Your Bucket Today? Students fill each other's buckets with pom poms when they witness a student doing something helpful or kind. When their bucket is full, that student will receive a sticker on a chart to commemorate their achievement.
