We are Bucket Fillers!

I finally made my buckets, I got them at Hobby Lobby and soooo excited for how they turned out!!!  So I would love to know how you manage your bucket filling ... the first day we did it they went pom-pom crazy so we stopped using the pom poms and went with the little letters I have found on other blogs ... so my problem is that they seem to want to write a note to EVERYONE and for EVERYTHING... don't get me wrong I love that they are so excited about it, but I don't want them doing it every second of the day.  So I would love to hear how you manage bucket filling in your classroom.  Thanks!!


  1. Your buckets look great, and I totally understand what you mean about not wanting them to fill forms out all day. I only let mine fill the forms out during our morning work time, because there is rarely any other down time during the day.

  2. I do the pom-pons, but I only allow them to fill buckets in the morning before the bell, after independent work is finished, before lunch, and at the end of the day. I have students manage full buckets by emptying the buckets and adding a sticker to the student's name label, indicating it has been filled one time! :)
