Another resource used to teach kindness was the book How Full is Your Bucket? The idea behind this book is that each of us has an imaginary bucket. The bucket is full when we are feeling good and having positive moments. The bucket empties when things are not going our way and/or people are being mean. I read the book aloud and the students had to reflect and write about the meaning behind the story. I felt the book made a lasting impression on my 6th graders.
