This week students learned about bucket filling as we read and discussed the story; Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids, written by Carol McCloud and illustrated by David Messing. Students learned about treating others with kindness and compassion as they learned that everyone has an invisible bucket and when they choose to be
thoughtful to others, they not only fill the other person’s bucket as well as their own. This is a wonderful story that teaches children how to nurture the emotional well being of others in conjunction with their own. Please ask your child to explain the concept of Bucket Filling.
