LOVE THIS!! Not only will it fit into my tiny classroom, but it is Kindergarten appropriate. Instead of writing out what the child did to fill a bucket, he or she just adds a pom-pom. We can work our way up to writing, but this is a way to start "Bucket Filling" at the beginning of the year with my little ones. I am so excited! :)
First, he blows some bubbles and, as expected, the kids all pop them. Then, he challenges them to NOT pop the bubbles even if one lands on the tip of their nose. Introduce the concept of self control and launch a discussion about stopping to think before you act. Dustin refers to it as a "bullet" in your year that you can refer back to again and again. "Think about that time when we didn't pop the bubbles..."
