The How to Fill a Bucket Writing Activity is designed to accompany the reading of "Have you Filled a Bucket Today?" or "Fill a Bucket" by Carol McCloud. The books reinforce positive behavior and choices through daily kindness and appreciations. "Bucket filling" is a great metaphor to be using when discussing kindness with young students. Before writing, brainstorm as a class more examples of bucket filling inside and outside of the classroom.
Two different versions are included: color and black and white. There are four different writing prompts for each. Have students answer different prompts or print the same one for the whole class.
