We ARE Bucket Fillers
This year we are introducing a new character-development program in Kindergarten, called “Bucket Filling”.
“Bucket filling” is an easy concept:Everyone carries an invisible bucket that holds our good thoughts and feelings. When our buckets are full, we feel happy and when our buckets are empty, we feel sad.
Children quickly understand that they can fill buckets when they do and say things that are kind, considerate, caring, and respectful. They also learn that when they are mean, inconsiderate, uncaring, or disrespectful, they dip into buckets and remove those good feelings. Even the youngest child understands that actions and words can either fill a bucket or dip into it.
During this school year, we are encouraging and recognizing everyone’s efforts to be bucket fillers at home, at school, and throughout their community .
We are excited about this program and look forward to your support. If you would like to learn more about bucket filling, visit the Bucket Fillers Website, www.bucketfillers101.com. They have a free newsletter for parents and teachers. Also look for the Bucket Filling Books (Have you Filled a Bucket Today?By Carol McCloud,How Full is your Bucket? For kids by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer, andFill a Bucket, A Guide To Daily Happiness for Young Children,by Carold McCloud and Katherine Martin) to share at home.

I will send home a weekly activity sheet the first day of each week. This activity sheet briefly explains some of the activities we will be working on during class. Please use this to ask your child questions about what is going on during our day. I will also include homework activities on the weekly activity sheet. The homework will be simple activities that will help your child review skills for the upcoming report card such as practice your address or phone number, count to 30, etc
Weekly Activity Sheet May 27-31
