Help Kids Practice Kindness by Filling Each Other’s Buckets
How can kids become expert bucket fillers? One way is to practice showing kindness and compassion so that they’re ready to do better in real life!
After reading How Full Is Your Bucket? Young Reader’s Edition by Tom Rath and Audra Wallace with your students, download this free printable “Fill Your Friendship Bucket: Act It Out!” activity.
Students can choose from three bucket-dipping scenarios and transform them into bucket-filling ones that bring happiness to others.
Encourage more advanced students to write their own scenes from scratch. They can start with a bucket-dipping scenario and transform it into a bucket-filling event.
This activity is inspired by fourth grade teacher Kelly Matthews from Steele Elementary in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Discover other self-affirming exercises you can try with your students in her Book Talks teacher review video!
How did your students act out the scenes? If you’re able, please share a video of their bucket-filling performances with the Scholastic Book Clubs community on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
