Throw Back Thursday Bucket Fillers

I'm joining First Grade Parade's Linky and revisiting my very first blog post for Throwback Thursday.

It's my all time most viewed post originally posted back on April 19th, 2011

Hope you find some new ideas for using Bucket Filling in your classroom.

For the past several years I've used the popular Bucket Filler books by Carol McCloud in my classroom.

If you've not taken a peek at this series it is a MUST do.  At the start of every school year I begin the bucket filler program. I have this bulletin board display of personalized buckets for classmates to add positive bucket filler thoughts.

Here's my Bucket Filler Bulletin Board. I personalized each bucket with student's names and taped them to party favor treat boxes.  

In addition, I found an adorable Bucket Filler song online written by Ken Beere.

Be sure to grab a copy of the song lyrics I typed up.  

Be sure to view the video skits done by Fairmont Elementary School too. The videos are a GREAT way to get Bucket Fillers off to a great start in your classroom!
