On Thursday, January 3, the Kindergarten class read a story entitled "Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?" The book helps the children to understand how doing good deeds and making someone else feel good about themselves can make make a person feel good. Even a smile can make someone's day!
The students in Grade 2 each have a bucket to which Mrs. Parris adds notes to inspire them. The students in Grade 2 visited with the Kindergarteners to share the notes in their buckets. Later in the day, the Grade 2 students wrote and presented bucket-filler notes to the Kindergarten students. This experience with the Grade 2 students truly brought the book to life for the Kindergarteners.
Everyone ended the day with a dance party that was so fun, Grade 1 decided to join in as well! Students had a blast dancing to the Macarena and the Chicken Dance.
What a fun, meaningful day for the students in K-2! We are so blessed by them and their wonderful teachers! Let's all seek out ways to fill each other's buckets every day!
