First Graders Are Filling Our Buckets
I reread one of my favorite books to share at the beginning of the year, Have You Filled a Bucket Today? written by Carol McCloud! Even though my first graders experienced this book when they were kindergarteners, I thought it was a great way for them to connect to our upcoming Character Counts! Week.
They were full of observations, connections, and ideas while I read the book...I could hardly turn the page! Afterward we shared how we can be bucket fillers by illustrating a picture and writing a sentence describing their kindness toward others. Click each thumbnail below to see their creative ideas!
