This pack is full of activities to use to enrich your Bucket Filling Units.
My principal planned a “kick off” assembly to introduce Bucket Filling to our students so I volunteered my class to be the entertainment!
I spent a Saturday night making my own lyrics, creating my own “mix” to Justin Bieber’s Girlfriend tune using GarageBand and practicing how to sing it in my basement with my fancy, expensive noise cancelling Bose headphones.
When I came up from the basement, my husband said that I sounded awful and that I should ask my music teacher sister to sing it for me. What a bucket dipper! I shared my pitchy version with my students on Monday and Bucket Friend was born. In their eyes, I was a Rock Star! They filled my bucket!
We performed it at the assembly, but they got stage fright and left me hanging! You can view our live performance or our school version by clicking the links provided in the packet. It became our theme song and my class “hammed” it up privately in our room all year!
Bucket Friend is a silly song that was inspired by the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids by Carol McCloud. It was a real hit so I plan to use it again this year! Hope you enjoy it too!
