Character in Action



In second grade we read the book, “How Full is your Bucket” by Tom Rath and Mary Reckmeyer, to remind us to be thankful for each other. Afterwards, each student was responsible for writing a thank-you-for-being-you note on small fall-themed pieces of paper to each of their fellow classmates. We shared the notes out loud to “fill up” each other’s bucket. The book and the activity reminded us that it is our responsibility to fill each other’s buckets every day by saying and doing nice things for everyone around us.
