Dear Parents/ Guardians,
This month we will be reading the book,” Have You Filled a Bucket Today” by Carol McCloud. Through simple prose and vivid illustrations, this heartwarming book encourages positive behavior as children see how rewarding it is to express daily kindness, appreciation, and love. This book explains to children that we all carry an invisible bucket in which we keep our feelings about ourselves. When our buckets are full, we are happy; when they are empty, we are sad. It is important to know that we can fill our own bucket and so can others. We fill buckets by saying nice things to the people around us. We fill buckets by doing nice things for people.
I have attached the “Bucket Fill-osophy” . This explains the theory of the dipper and the bucket. Please take the time to look it over and talk with your child about why it is important to be a bucket filler. Perhaps you could talk about how they could be a bucket filler at home and at school. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org .in.us or my extension is 345.
