Are you a Bucket Filler?
The Buck Filling Team!
Being quite familiar with Carol McCloud's first two books, I was so excited to spark up a friendly conversation with the two ladies. As a former first grade teacher, I know how powerful and inspirational Bucket Filling can be for a school. During my time as a first grade teacher, we became a Bucket Filling School - how exciting! The positive language and celebrations the children became a part of truly transformed the culture of our elementary.
After moving to the middle school, I enjoyed hearing the Bucket Filling language continue as our students would still use some of the lingo. However, I wished that there was an extension of Bucket Filling that could continue into the older grades. Of course, we could still use it; however, I knew it would be more 'age-appropriate' and receive more buy in from the older kids if we could tweak the program a bit to fit our adolescent aged kids.
I am going to have to get this book. Looks very interesting.
