Culminating "Bucket-Filler" Activity for the End of the School Year
- Grades: 3–5
At the end of the year, we cap off our Bucket Filling program in a special way. The pom-poms are removed from all of the students' buckets. The students then write compliments or positive messages to each of their classmates. The messages are written on small strips of paper that can fit into the buckets. Students add their personal messages to their classmates' buckets, and the students get to take their bucket full of positive messages home to read.
It is a wonderful way to end the school year, as students love to hear the great things their classmates have to say about them!
My teaching partner and I also type up personal messages for each student on address labels and stick them to the outside of the bucket.
