Fill my Bucket!

I read to my students Have You Filled A Bucket Today by Carol McCloud.  I am so impressed with my third graders response to it.  I also amazed how easy it is to use with them as a teaching tool.  All day long they will tell me about either someone filling their bucket or witnessing someone else bucket dip.  Today my daughter (who is in my class) and I gave a co-worker a ride home because she walked out of school today to find a flat tire.  After we dropped her off at her house, Baylei said to me I think we just filled a bucket!  I love it!  She's right! I should have taken that opportunity to finish with how our own buckets were filled by the good deed as well.  I will definitely address that later.  If you haven't had the opportunity to check this book out yet, it is definitely worth looking in to.  Here is a link to a Freebie from http://seusstastic.blogspot.com/. It is full of bucket filling ideas and reproducibles to get bucket filling going in your classroom. It is the September 21, 2012 post.  There is a ton of great ideas in that post so keep scrolling down the post to find the bucket filling.
