Have You Filled a Bucket Contest

Before you know it the End of The School Year will be here. I have a good idea for a Teacher Appreciation gift that I wanted to share with you and offer as a contest too!

A must read book on my list is Have You Filled a Bucket Today. 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.
Buy this book for your child’s teacher, wrap it up, and attach a note to the outside telling them that they have filled the bucket of your child. Click here for a FREE printable note. This is a Publisher file. You can modify the words to fit your child's needs.

This was such a great contest. I love your website, and as a 3rd grade teacher, I am also on the Character Education Committee at my school. We just looked into having the Bucket Fillers program for our school, so your email could not have come at a more perfect time!!!

I shared your contest with my colleagues and even my principal. As someone who promotes kind and respectful behavior each and every day in my classroom and through literature, I would be so excited to be the winner of this worthwhile contest!!

I blog! This sounds wonderful and it was encouraging to me! Even if it took me a long time since my little one was on my lap the whole time :-)
