Someone posted an idea for altered paint cans. I found a bucket at Lowes and decorated it for my Bucket system. Here's a picture! It was easy and fun.

That is so cute!! Is this for all the students or will each student get their own bucket? What did you use to decorate your bucket?

Thanks in advance!!!!

Thank you for sharing this wonderful idea, I read Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud. I have gotten some great ideas to add to my lesson from PT. I also found a sand bucket on www.letscolor.com/ColoringBooks/Summer/sandbucket.htm and use this pattern for a b board.
I am heading to Lowe's today for white shelves and book baskets like Mrs. Meacham's. I think I will pick up a bucket, too. Thanks.

Your bucket is lovely. I got one for an end-of-the-year gift. It had my name and lots of teacher decorations like ABCs. Then she filled it with small items like pens, pads, etc. I love it!

I let the kids decorate the bucket to reflect themselves. I am going to run buckets off on tagboard this year to be sturdier.

The author, Carol McCloud has a site bucket filler 101 or something like that. It also has a picture of a bboard. I am not using my own computer now, but I am sure you can google her.

I've never heard of this book, or the program, but I really like the bulletin board idea. I might use paper cups as buckets, with pipe cleaners for handles, but I'm not sure if it's easy to decorate paper cups with the wax coating. Has any one else used cups? Thank you for the great idea!

how to get around kids competing with this? I REALLY want to implement this; however, I am already foreseeing some kids getting more slips in their buckets than others and no matter how much discussion and modeling from me, I would bet they will be talking to each other out of my earshot about how so and so only got 3 and I got more than so and so...I hate that I sound like I am pessimistic, but I just want this to work. Any ideas out there?

Bucket filling
Old 07-26-2008, 10:59 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #23

I, too, am struggling with how I want to implement this. I definitely love the book and the idea behind it, but I don't want it to be a competition, either. And, I don't want it to be about getting slips or kudos or whatever. I want it to be more of a feeling, an intrinsic thing, rather than something they are motivated for for extrinsic reasons. I want it to be a regular part of our conversations, I guess, and that is how I will keep it. I made up some posters to hang around my room. I'll attach one here ...

One will go on the outside of our classroom door and it has the bucket icon and says, "We are bucket-fillers! YOU can be, too!"

Another one says, "Have you filled a bucket today?" and will go in our classroom.

Another says, "Are you a bucket-filler?" and will also go in our classroom.

i just had one (that i'd been storing CD's in!) that is blue with bright green frogs--and so will be a good accent to the already bright green board i didn't want to take down!

my kids will have gold stars (size of palm--from Dollar Tree) to write their compliments to the class on--i'll write them as well and write down compliments i hear from other teachers--the stars will be stapled up on the board with bucket

i made some little paper buckets that will be taped into my students' planners--with an opening at the top. students will be encouraged (and i'll probably try to find some time when we can do it as well as randomly) to fill others' buckets by writing a compliment on a slip of paper and give to them to put in their bucket. (i have a green bucket...i'd been waiting for an excuse to use it after the plant in it died!...that i'll have on my desk with little slips of papers for kids to use. they'll also be encouraged to fill THEIR OWN buckets, because we can't always count on others to appreciate our good qualities. so if someone does really well, for example, on a spelling test and nobody notices, they can fill out a slip for their own bucket. (these will just be blank slips.) i'll attach the little buckets--nothing exciting...

bucket posters

Clip to ScrapBook #29

stlcardinals ... here are the other two posters you asked about.

I am thinking that I will print up business cards (I'm a Vista Print addict) with the clip art that I used and have them say, "Thanks for filling someone's bucket today." I haven't figured out if I am going to use them within our classroom, or use it as a teaching tool for my class to notice bucket-fillers amongst the school community. I think I might have my class write a friendly letter (we'd do it together on the chart or SMARTBoard and then print it out) to the other classes in our building, explaining what the bucket idea is. We'd also offer to share the children's book I bought with other classes, and also offer to share our class-made book of bucket-filling ideas (the kids will illustrate the pages). Then, when they notice or hear other kids filling buckets of their peers, they can give them a card. Wouldn't that be fun, and give them some ownership?

Thanks for this post, it has really helped me decide how I want to implement the bucket-filling idea in my class.

I'll post the business card pic after I make it up!

I really like this idea but not sure it is doable in a half day kdg. class. I was thinking of somehow incorporating it into my writing center; at the beginning of the year kids could just draw pictures and then move on to more writing...

What do you think? Need more ideas.... Can I make it work in half day kdg.?

I think it can work in any classroom, family, community, etc. I, personally, feel like it's more an "attitude" of bucket-filling, rather than a product-related activity. I want the kids to be motivated to be bucket-fillers just because it makes them feel good inside.

That aside, here are the business cards I made up ... I am not sure how I will use them, but I'll probably do one of the things I mentioned above. They weren't free because I chose to use a background that was not one of their free ones, and I also uploaded a clip art of my own. I also ordered 500 instead of the 250. I got the glossy part for free, though. The 500 cards came to $10 and some change.

I posted the picture of my bucket this morning and left for a looonnnggg bike ride. It is now 2:30 and I returned to PT and am surprised to see so many posts about my bucket! For those that asked, I just used some scrapbook pages that I got from the Dollar Tree. I also got the flower cut outs from the Dollar Tree. I glued everything on with rubber cement. It was easy.

I am going to use the bucket to keep the blank slips in that kids fill out. I am using other paper buckets on envelopes for the kids' buckets. Someone on PT had an attachment with a paper bucket pattern but I can't remember who it was....and boo hoo...I printed it out but didn't save the pattern! It was cute.

I have the book on order from Amazon.com . It was $5.50 or so plus shipping. Good price!

I haven't actually implemented it yet...this will be my first year. I have thought about the same things as you. I don't want it to be a competition and I do worry about some kids getting more than others. As many of us work with it this year, let's share our ideas on PT! We may all come up with a solution. Let me know how it goes in your room. Thanks for the poster. It's cute!

I am just back from 2 bookstores and neither had the book...just my luck! If you've read the story, do the buckets need to look like the ones on Mrs. Walker's site? I am doing a monkey theme and thought about making paper ones with pix on the front of monkeys. Would that work, do you think?

Love the Bucketfillers idea!
Old 07-26-2008, 03:24 PM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #39

I came
across this idea a few days ago and thought it was the coolest thing. I too plan on implementing it in my class this year. I even e-mailed info about it to my vice principal at school and asked her for her thoughts on it. I told her I thought it would be good to do schoolwide, but that I was planning to try it regardless and share the idea with my first grade team. I think it is a wonderful idea. There is a follow up book too called Fill a Bucket. You can order them directly from the author's site:

http://www.bucketfillers101.com/home.php

This idea is similar to something we did on our World Changers mission trip this year. Everyone had an envelope attached to the wall and we were to write encouragrams to put in them. It was a neat thing and nice to get encouraging words from those we were working with as well as friends from our home church. If I enjoyed it as an adult, I think kids would love it.

Thanks to all who shared posters and ideas. They look awesome!

I am not familar with the book, but I have seen similar things implemented in other classrooms. I plan on getting the book sometime this week and making a "plan" of how I can implement it in a departmentalized 5th grade. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas!

FYI: the book is kind of juvenile (but i bought it and will use it with my 6th graders!) i know some older grade teachers are sensitive about such things, but i usually can make them work if i "cool it up". i love the message!

http://www.bucketfillers101.com/home.php

This is a web site that talks some about it.

This one is good too:

http://www.steveandcat.net/mrswalker/bucket_fillers.htm


In a nutshell, it's based on a book Have You Filled a Bucket Today? It's a book for younger kids but teachers of many grade levels are using it to base an encouragement system for their classroom. You "fill" a bucket by writing encouraging words and comments to someone and placing it in their "bucket." Look at the web sites and you'll get a good idea of the concept. Hope that helps!!

Thank you for introducing me to this idea! I ordered the book from Barnes and Noble, and I've also pre ordered the new book that will be out soon. Question....please pardon me if this is a silly question, it's new to me......the bucket that you decorated, what are you using it for? Does it hold the blank slips of paper, or will your students put the comment slips inside of it once they've written on them? Thanks!

My partner and I used the book in class last year. Instead of buckets we used rain drops and put those drops on the board as students did nice things for one another. Each afternoon we would acknowledge a few drops.

Some of you were concerned about the competition aspect? We talked about doing nice things for people and we role modeled what it would look like, such as picking up someone's pencil that dropped, loaning a pencil sharpener, saying bless you when someone sneezed. Those were not the nice things we filled out a paper for. We filled them out for non-every day kind acts. This eliminated that competition in our classes and it worked GREAT all year! Periodically we would fill out a drop for a student who didn't have one.

filling the buckets
Old 07-27-2008, 11:55 AM
 
Clip to ScrapBook #55

I am going to make a sheet of droplets and run them off and cut out. I used to use mailboxes and we would have days where we all wrote warm fuzzies to EVERYONE . I also had a story which I lost years ago about being kind to each other.Somewhere in the story they used the acronym IALAC -I Am Loveable And Capable. Whenever someone said or did somethig rude to another student ,the student who was mis-treated could call an ILAC (pronounced eye-lack)on that person. The offender who said the 'cold prickly' ,would have to write them a 'warm fuzzy.' This worked pretty well. I made them sign the note and it had to be about that person, not their shoes,things, etc. Yesterday I bought little tin buckets at the Dollar Tree and I am going to use droplets for the paper and have the helpers be mailmen. I liked the idea of one of the PT members who said they can 'fill' their own buckets too.
Thanks to all of you who contributed, this will be great

Teaching how to fill a bucket

Clip to ScrapBook #60

Some PTer had posted this and now I can't find it, please let me know who so they can receive credit and "have their bucket filled"!

Before students write slips
  1. Read Have You Filled A Bucket Today? discuss the book
  2. Day 2 read a picture book, poster suggested Ruby the Copycat, teacher writes meaningful and less meaningful compliments for the characters.
  3. For several days, read other picture books. Have partners write compliments. The class will decide which are meaningful and which are less so.
  4. Gradually let individual students write compliments. Class decides which are.....
  5. By the end of a week or so, students will have the idea of how this activity will work in the classroom.

Okay, I just went out and bought the book! Thanks PT for the idea!! The book is wonderful and the idea of bucket filling is Amazing.

Here is my question: If the idea of bucket filling is doing something without being asked, how do you avoid kids doing nice things JUST to receive a compliment slip? How do you limit extrinsic motivation and encourage the intrinsic kind?

Okay, at our school each child's name is written or typed onto colored cardstock. Each grade level is a different color. Each year, students are given stickers for positive actions they have exhibited. They are for attendance, reading to the principal, etc. I'm going to ask my principal if we could copy the bucket onto the cardstock, and place the stickers in the bucket.

Thanks for all of the "bucket" ideas.

I am going to try this as well this year. I did like the idea to get actually buckets for each student, so...... I bought white wedding favor buckets at the Dollar Tree (3 in a package). Then I will let the students decorate how they wish. I hope this helps someone.

Bucket Dippers

I have made a big deal about verbally acknowledging things my students say that are bucket fillers. I haven't heard many dippers, but if I do, in front of the whole class I say "That wasn't a nice thing to say. You just dipped into __'s bucket!" ( I think I've only done that once since school started -7days ago.) I'm wondering if that's why I haven't heard many. My students are REALLY loving the bucket filling!! We looked into our buckets for the first time yesterday, and everyone was very proud. I'm so glad I found this idea on PT. Thanks you all!

Did everyone get something in their bucket? I would feel bad for the ones that didn't, at least during the first week that you looked. did you have to do some filling so everyone would have something? If not, how did you handle those that didn't get anything?

I took someone else's advice from another post and told each child to do at least three bucket fillers each week. I gave them a class list to keep in their "Safe Place" folder so they could check off student's names as they filled buckets. It went well. I only had to write fillers for a few students. That way everyone had something in thier bucket.

ahhh, good idea. Should they do 3 different people each week? Maybe I'll give them 3 people to be secretly watching all week to "catch" them doing something good, that way no one is left out.

I can't wait to meet her...I can't wait to pick her brain for more ideas....I'll let you know how it goes...I start tomorrow morning with a new class of "Bucket Fillers"...your ideas and comments have been great!

Well, the Bucket Filling Team from Carol McCloud's group came to our school on Tuesday and did a student assembly, and a parent assembly that night. They were wonderful and keep the entire student body engaged for the 45 minute presentation...the parent assembly had about 40 parents, we had hoped for more, but it was a wonderful evening, and I think football and soccer practice probably had something to do with the attendance...the parents that were there thought it was great...this is our school wide theme, and we are becoming a Bucket Filling School. It is nice to have a common language with the children.... Perhaps some of you don't know, this concept started at the corporate level, and Carol was encouraged to write a children's book with the same theme...so she did! My childen colored buckets, and I attached them to tagboard, and made a pocket. We used bucket filling slips this week and everyone opened them on Friday...It was like Christmas and the children were so surprised at what students had given them bucket slips...I received several wonderful ones as well...as the teacher, you do need to check to make sure everyone has at least a couple/three slips.... I love this program and so do the children...they really seem to "get it" and are sharing it at home too! I bought an extra book I send home with a different child every night to share at home. They return it the next day for someone else to use. Good luck if you are trying it! Happy Bucket Filling Day....You all fill my bucket nightly with your sharing.....

I used the book in my class and then passed out party cups, like the ones you would use at a birthday party. I used a hole puncher to make holes on either side to hold the handle. I then attached a pipe cleaner for the handle. After having the kids make their own buckets you can use candy, gummies or I use those bright colored pom poms to go around filling each others buckets: 1st: with a kind action displayed and then 2nd: drop one pom pom in the other students bucket and one in their own each time because everytime we fill someone's bucket we also fills our own (by making us feel good inside).

HI --

I am the author of the book and a past teacher. I like using clear solo cups and either pipe cleaner or construction paper handles for the children's buckets. I use address label stickers for drawing the face on the bucket.

We are considering scheduling the Bucket Filling Team to come to our school next year. It's pretty expensive and our Director is hesistant to schedule a parent assembly because she has not seen the presentation. Can you tell me more about the visit to your school? I love the book. I have been reading it to classes along with the bucket I made with glitter/felt hearts and stars to put in our bucket as we give examples of bucket filling.

Please see the post above. I am copying and pasting for you!


http://www.bucketfillers101.com/home.php

This is a web site that talks some about it.

This one is good too:

http://www.steveandcat.net/mrswalker/bucket_fillers.htm


In a nutshell, it's based on a book Have You Filled a Bucket Today? It's a book for younger kids but teachers of many grade levels are using it to base an encouragement system for their classroom. You "fill" a bucket by writing encouraging words and comments to someone and placing it in their "bucket." Look at the web sites and you'll get a good idea of the concept. Hope that helps!!

Bucket Filler Idea

I know that some of you are not sure how the slip idea would work in your classroom especially for the younger ones like Kindergarten. Last year I created a bulletin board in my classroom and each student had their bucket. Instead of placing compliment strips of paper in each others buckets, we placed colorful, big wooden sticks. At the end of the day or week, we were able to appreciate who had the most sticks in their bucket. I used more as an intrinsic reward rather than extrinsic. We would praise the student with the most sticks and acknowledged those who had sticks in their buckets. The students loved to be the one with the most sticks in their bucket. If extrinsic rewards are needed to motivate your students; then, you could perhaps award the student with the most sticks with a special classroom privilege or a small surprise.

I love this idea! It is so great to see all the wonderful ideas from all around.

Has anyone ever used this with adults? For instance for staff meetings or just in the lounge.
