Do You Have a Class of Bucket Fillers?

I've been scouring the internet looking for new things to use in class.  I stumbled across Have You Filled a Bucket Today? and decided to order the book.  This book is nothing short of wonderful!  I know my description can't do it justice, but here goes anyway... 

The basic premise of Have You Filled a Bucket Today? is that we all carry an invisible bucket.  Kindness and compliments fill our buckets, but meanness (being a bucket dipper) empties our buckets.  The cute illustrations in the book fit the story perfectly.

To further compliment the book, visit http://www.bucketfillers101.com and download a free coloring page and Bucketfiller certificates for your students. Posters, stickers, pencils, and more are available to purchase on the site.

Here is an excerpt from the Bucketfiller website:

Bucketfillers 101: School assemblies, staff trainings, adult seminars, and bucketfilling books and classroom resources based on the book, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? We stop bullying before it begins.

After reading the book and looking at the website, we've decided to have a class bucket as well.  When our class bucket is full, we will do something special.  We'll be a class of Bucketfillers! I am looking forward to using this series year after year.  Check it out for your students.  I promise you will not be disappointed!
