This is a great social skill lesson that can be completed in 25 minutes! It allows students to identify the qualities and characteristics of bucket fillers and bucket dippers. Our class watched the electronic version of "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" on YouTube. Another option is to read the book listed in the brief lesson plan.
Each student got one or more of the characteristics. They had to think/pair/share to the whole class if their paper was a bucket filler or bucket dipper. The anchor charts are posted in our classroom for a visual reminder.
