Have you filled a bucket today is about young children and how they can fill their bucket or dip into their own and others bucket. The book gives examples of how to be bucket fillers and bucket dippers. It shows the consequences of being good or bad.
Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:
Have you filled a bucket today could be used to show students how to be good bucket fillers or what they can do to become good bucket fillers and not bucket dippers. The teacher could have the students go around the room and fill each other’s buckets by saying nice things to each other, if a student is left out go about getting that students bucket filled as well.
Reading Level & Leveling System:
Pre-k to Second
I would rate this book a 5 because its great for students to learn how to be bucket fillers and not bucket dippers. It gives students a representation of what they are supposed to do to make themselves happy and others happy. It also goes about saying that being a bucket dipper only makes you sad in the long run.
