Anyone read/used the book "How full is your bucket" by Tom Rath with your class? ("Have you filled a bucket today" is the same idea.) My class has really enjoyed discussion and related activities, except for one 8 year old boy who shouts out that 'the imaginary bucket isn't real...the idea is stupid...doesn't work....etc'. I've pulled him aside to help him with specifics about how he feels when people are nice to him vs mean to him. He agrees that he enjoys getting compliments and he feels good, but wont accept that a put-down to someone else dips into his own bucket as well as the other person's. Ideas?!! Any activities you do with this book or concept? It's near the end of the year, but we're doing a unit on friendship so it's fitting in nice...next year I'll read the book asap! Thanks!
