Tomorrow we are going to talk about one of my FAVORITE topics of 'How Full Is Your Bucket?'!!! Our entire school uses this concept and I also refer to this at home, as well. It is something great for both adults & kids to think about. The theme comes from the book, 'How Full Is Your Bucket for Kids,' by Tom Rath & Mary Reckmeyer. We will be reading this story in class, and then each of the students will receive their own (individually decorated) 'bucket' to take home along with pom poms to fill it up with.
The general concept is that when we make good choices, we not only fill our own bucket, but we fill the buckets of others (including God’s). Yet, when we make some not so great choices, our buckets empty out a bit. We will use the term ‘filling our bucket’ often in class.
We will also have a class bucket as shown above. Each of the students will take turns placing additional pom poms on the bucket when great choices are made. Once our Class Bucket is full, we will celebrate with a special treat!
We will also pull a little movement into our fun day by having a bucket filling relay race!
Can't wait for tomorrow!
As a mom, I love to know what my children are discovering during their days and I am sure you do too! Stop by here anytime to see what fun & learning we are up to!
