"Bucket Fillers" is a classroom strategy used to help build a sense of community in the classroom by having student's "fill" other classmates "buckets" with compliments, kindness, confidence boosters, etc. Student's are encouraged to be "Bucket Fillers" (a person who supports others) instead of a "Bucket Dipper" (a person who is unkind to others).

This is so true... I was told once by a teacher that children retain better if they are using three or more motor skills at the same time... see, hear, do, or see, say, do... any combination of three helps them rertain more. As a homeschool Mom I can say I definately agree,and all the stuff I forgot ...teaching it has totally made it stick!
