This summer when I started checking out teacher blogs I kept reading about this amazing book called "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?" It's a great book about doing kind things such as helping someone, smiling at someone, holding their hand, hugging them, and just doing really nice things. While subbing a teacher even had me read the book to the 1st graders and had them draw pictures of how they would fill their bucket and others buckets. I went in another classroom where the teacher had it set up where children could write nice things to each other and put it in their pretend bucket (a pocket chart with their names on it). Click on the book to check it out from Amazon!
Then I got this amazing CD from The Learning Station. It's called #1 Best Kids Songs. I will be giving this away at some point!!! On this CD was an amazing song called "Fill Your Bucket." It has the same great message as the book and it puts the book's great story into a fun song. I loved the song so much that I contacted The Learning Station on FB and I asked them if they could make a video for it. Guess what they agreed to do just that all because of me! Wow, they are amazing! You can see the video for the song right here:
Please head on over to The Learning Station's FB page and thank them for putting this great book into a song and video! Have you filled someone's bucket today by filling your own? Please share with me how you did it! I told a child how proud I was of her for having All A's and 1 B on her report card and told many others how much I loved subbing for them!
