Bucket Fillers

We have finished reading a great book about happiness, called Have you Filled A Bucket Today - A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids. This book encourages positive behavior as children see how rewarding it is to express daily kindness and appreciation. We all carry an invisible bucket in which we keep our feelings about ourselves. When our buckets are full, we are happy; when they are empty, we are sad. It is important to know that we can fill our own bucket and so can others. We fill buckets by saying nice things to the people around us and by doing nice things for people. When we make others feel good we are also filling our own buckets at the same time. Bucket dippers are people who say mean things to others and hurt other people`s feelings. Our goal this year is have a room with overflowing buckets.
Thanks for your continued support.
