As a teacher, I noticed that a girl in my class, Rachel, does not play with children on the playground, nobody ever asks her to play. One day I had duty and noticed another girl in my class, Sarah, inviting Rachel to play with her. After recess I let Sarah know that she was being a bucket filler and made Rachel feel special and loved. I let Sarah put pom-poms in Rachel’s plastic cup when we get back into the room to represent bucket filling.
At school one day I noticed that a couple of children were picking on Adam because he got glasses. I explain to the class that they are dipping from Adam’s bucket. I tell them we need to be bucket fillers and not bucket dippers. We talk about ways we can be bucket fillers.
Send out a newsletter Have a bucket filling conference at school Keep up with the bucket filling every week Make the newsletter informational about bucket filling (Websites) Make the conference fun, yet informational Send a letter home at the end of the week telling parents what they did to fill buckets
Implement it into your own lives. You will notice a big difference on what you say! Think before you speak!
