Caught You Doing Something Nice Cards
Bucket Fillers and Character Education
My school's new principal would like to implement some sort of character education program and I think it is a wonderful idea. She already recognizes students who "do something nice" by making an announcement over the loud speaker and by giving them a "Caught You Doing Something Nice!" pencil. I recently had her announce one of my students, who went out of her way to be a good friend. My class was so proud and the student was beaming!
I remember seeing some beautiful "Bucket Filler" bulletin board displays on blogs and decided do some research using Google Reader. Through Google Reader, I was able to search all the blogs I follow for the term "Bucket Filler." I took a screen shot of the website/blog's button and attached a direct link to their "Bucket Filler" posts. I plan on sharing these links with my principal and colleagues. Here are some great posts I found:
