Last year my class started bucket filling. I think it is a great message to send to our students...to strive to do something for others and feel that pride in your heart. I plan on using it again this year and I made this cute little owl bulletin board set. I will write a child’s name on each owl and hang a bucket below it. Each time the bucket is filled the student adds a sticker to their bucket and gets to each lunch with the teacher :)
I’m hoping to use this as my main reward system because I like that it is mainly intrinsic. Last year I got caught up in multiple reward systems because my class dynamic kept changing. This year I am making a strong commitment to this system and making it work year round!
