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.
David Shannon, we read your wonderful book about the importance of being oneself. Then, each kid got a cup of vanilla pudding to color.

Listening & following directions.....RJ has had a rough day...he wakes up with gum stuck in his hair, misses recess because he's late to school, earns a zero on his math homework, kicks the ball into his own team's soccer goal, and messes up Mom's kitchen with his overflowing pancake batter! With his mother's help, RJ learns that his problems happen because he doesn't listen or pay attention to directions from her, his school principal, teachers, or even his friends.
