Monthly School-wide Life skill focus

CHARACTER EDUCATION (BUCKET FILLERS PROGRAM)

Bucket Fillers is our character education program at Madison Street. Bucket filling is an easyto-understand concept: We all carry an invisible bucket. This bucket contains our feelings. When our bucket is full, we feel great; when it’s empty, we feel empty. A Bucket Filler is someone who says or does nice things for other people. By doing this, they are filling other people’s buckets and filling their own bucket at the same time. On the other hand, a Bucket Dipper says or does things to cause other people to feel bad. This simple but profound philosophy applies to every aspect of life. Check out these read alouds of 2 Bucket Filler books:
