Kindergarten Bucket Fillers!

With the help of Have You Filled A Bucket Today?No David! and David Goes To School, my students discovered how to be Bucket Fillers vs. Bucket Dippers. We compared the differences using two separate circle maps. Students defined characteristics of Bucket Fillers and Bucket Dippers and then created a self-portrait of themselves as a Bucket Filler. Later, we created our "class promise", in which we all promised to fill each other's buckets throughout our time as a class family. Great Kinder lesson to kick off the year!
