We are Bucket Fillers! The kindergarteners in C2 have created a bucket-filling classroom. Fi
rst, we read the book
Have You Filled a Bucket Today? A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids, by Carol McCloud. Then we discussed and listed the many ways that we can fill each others buckets every day. The "buckets" represent our state of mind and well being, and the language of bucket filling has become synonymous with kindness and the 4 C’s at EMS.
The children are motivated and excited about being bucket fillers by helping one another, working together, demonstrating kindness and showing appreciation. They are learning that when they help to fill other peoples buckets, they are actually filling their own buckets as well.
