I worked on more details for my classroom today. I wanted it to look presentable because parents come next week for assessment days. One of the things I did was put my buckets together. I am a BIG believer in the power of bucket filling.
So I attached tags to the buckets with wrapping ribbon. I wrote the students name on both sides with permanent marker.
Here's what they look like hung up!
You can see in this pic the books I start off the year with. I especially love "Say Something " and "Have You Filled a Bucket Today? " of course!
To hang my buckets I use clear plastic hooks like these.
I put mine up last year and they are still going strong! I also hung up the posters you can barely see in the pic.
My students will begin filling bucket right away! I have bucket filling forms on their desks for them to fill out about each other. I read them aloud to encourage other students to be bucket fillers. This program has really given my classroom a positive and nurturing classroom environment.
The tags, posters, and activities are all available on my Bucket Filling Classroom Activity Packet at my TpT store.
Do you use bucket filling in your classroom? What do you like about it? Anyone work at a bucket filling school? I would love to know what that is like!
