The activities in this mini-unit are designed to go along with the book, Have You Filled A Bucket Today?, by Carol McCloud. We created this unit so that it could be used with a variety of grade levels from kindergarten to fifth grade. With this in mind, there is a primary and an intermediate response page for most of the activities. We have used this book in our classrooms (first and third grades) for a few years now and decided to create this unit out of a need for activities that we felt were student centered and more in depth. This packet is intended for the first few days of school or when ever you feel the need for classroom community building. It includes: a writing/art activity (with the templates) , a classroom book, a primary anchor chart activity, intermediate independent work activity, scenario task cards with a primary and intermediate response page and certificates to reward classroom behavior.
