|Reading "Have You Filled A Bucket Today"|
We also showed a cute and fun song video clip I found on Youtube to reiterate being a "bucket filler".

We sat in a circle (I had to make a mental note to wear pants since I LOVE skirts), where we used a ball of yarn to make a "web of kindness", where each student gives a compliment to a classmate, while tossing and holding on to the yarn being passed around (hence the web). As Emily shared, the students felt so proud to give and receive compliments. For our class visits, I assigned everyone a person to give a compliment to. I typed the student's names on an Avery address labels template, then cut the names out which I put in a cup and let them pick out of. If they happened to draw their own name, they just picked another name. That way nobody had that "last picked" feeling.
