Directions: For the Character Trait of Kindness, Read the book, How Full is Your Bucket?” and discuss ways of being kind to others.
Choose a bucket color and cut it out and paste it to a pocket folder
envelope and staple it to the bulletin board. All around the bulletin
board staple the strips that show different ways of showing kindness. Encourage your students to recognize these kindness actions that their classmates portray each day. When a student catches someone showing one of these positive behaviors, they can write in on a Post-It note and put it in the bucket. Every once in a while, dump the envelope and
read out the “caught” acts of kindness. **Make sure you
have a container with Post-It notes and a pencil/marker
available for the students to write on.
Use the “Are You a Bucket Filler?” title to put on bulletin
board above the bucket.
