​As part of our Positive Behaviour for Learning focus this week – “I am aware my actions impact on others and make my actions positive”, we have been reading the picture book by Carol McCloud “Have you filled a bucket today?”

This heart-warming book encourages positive behaviour by using the concept of an invisible bucket to show children how easy and rewarding it is to express kindness, appreciation, and love by "filling buckets”. The book talks about "bucket dipping" as negative behaviours, not a permanent label. It also explains that it's possible to fill or dip into our own buckets as a result of our own behaviours.

There are three rules to being bucket fillers –

Rule One: Be a bucket filler.

Rule Two: Don’t dip.

Rule Three: Use your lid.

Next week, we explore the sequel “Growing up with a bucket full of happiness” to discuss the importance of using your lid to protect your good feelings and thoughts.

“Have you filled a bucket today?” is a wonderful addition to any home library. If you have not read it, please follow the link to hear Miss Bonney reading this picture book for your enjoyment and discussion.
