Buckets for our Bucket Fillers

So in my class this year, we are working on the theme of being "bucket fillers" for each other. This means we try to fill somone's bucket with good feeling and thoughts. Many thanks to my son David's second grade teacher who read the book to us at Open House the other night.

So, I borrowed the book and read it to my fifth grade class on Friday and they loved it! I thought I would surprise them on Monday by giving them each their own bucket, with a name tag and some things to decorate them with. Here is the sample I made for my assisstant:

September News!

Hi all- Can you believe how fast Septmeber is flying by?! As many of you know, I have recently returned to work after a two year leave. To say it has been hectic and quite an adjustment does not even begin to cover it!! However, now that I have a couple of weeks under my belt, I think I'm ready to face the "creative" world again.

I have a few projects I'm working on- including making buckets for our "bucket fillers" in my class and at home and some Halloween goody bags!

Anyway, hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather (my favorite time of year).

Thanks for peeking!
