FILL YOUR BUCKET SONG by The Learning Station. Bucket fillers' are those who help without being asked, give hugs and compliments, and generally spread their love and good feelings to others. It is proven that young children raised to understand the value of kindness are less likely to bully or even become violent.
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.

This is a great way of teaching students what a "bucket filler is." I love the idea of a bucket filler system in a classroom. Bucket fillers build community and make students feel good. Having students write an example of when they are "filling a bucket" is a great way of introducing the idea, especially to a young grade such as 1st.
