This download is intended to accompany the book “How Full is Your Bucket?” by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer. Included in this download are social and language activities that may be adapted and used with children from 1st through 4th grade. I love reading this book with all of my students at the beginning of the school year, and continuing the idea of being “bucket fillers” throughout the year.
Bucket Filler or Bucket Dipper?
-Mini lesson outline to teach these terms
-Graphic organizer to discuss ways to fill someone's bucket
-20 scenario cards depicting "filler" or "dipper" behaviors
-Template to make your own buckets
-"WH" comprehension questions to accompany the story
This download utilizes SymbolStix clipart (used with permission), which provides simple and concrete pictures. I love using this symbol system with my children who are on the autism spectrum, because the pictures are very straight forward.
If you use this unit with your students, please leave feedback to let me know what worked or didn't work. Enjoy!
