Have you Filled a Bucket Today?

Today we read a book called "Have you Filled a Bucket Today?" by Carol McCloud.  This author has the idea that everyone walks around carrying an "invisible bucket."  You "fill" a bucket when you show love to someone, when you say or do something kind, or even just by smiling at someone.  A bucket "filler" is kind and treats others with respect.  You can also "dip" into a bucket and take out these good things and feelings.  You are a bucket "dipper" when you make fun of someone, say mean things, or even ignore someone.  A bully is a bucket "dipper."  The author says,"All day long, we are either filling up or dipping into each other's buckets by what we say and do." 

This year in our class we are working on becoming bucket "fillers."  So, have you filled a bucket today?
