Bucket Filler Craft

We’ve added to the VIP Exclusive Library, an adorable bucket-filler activity!

The one-page-craft is amazingly fast to prep and we’ve teamed it up with some writing papers. Ask your students to write about being a bucket filler to accompany their creative work.

Bucket Filling Writing Ideas

  • write a list of 5 ways to be a bucket filler

  • create a class bucket-filling pledge and ask students to copy it on their writing paper and sign it

  • write 3 reasons why bucket-filling is awesome

  • write a procedural text on how to be a bucket-filler

  • write a descriptive text on how bucket-filling makes you feel

This printable pack was a newsletter freebie too, so if you are not signed up, we suggest you get on the list so you never mix a super-cute freebie every again!

Apple Classroom Labels

We’ve added a fun set of editable classroom labels to the VIP Exclusive Library!

The apple labels are provided in 3 colors:

  • red apple

  • green apple

  • yellow apple

All labels are also in 3 sizes:

  • page size

  • 2 to a page

  • 4 to a page

Just print, cut and write on them or open the MS Powerpoint file to type your information onto each label.

These labels are also in our TpT store for individual sale if you are not a Pond VIP!

Finger Counting Display

These big finger counting hands will help you create a display showing finger counting 0-10.

You could print them in the page format or adjust the size using your printing options and print 2 or 4 to a page to achieve smaller hands.

A variety of skin tones are represented. A blackline version is also included.

The finger count technique used is one common in many rigorous math programs and our Math Packs. This is the palm down, left to right progression, commencing with the little finger of the left hand.

These hands will look gorgeous on display but will also help with number, counting and math activities too!

Star Student Activity

Help students identify qualities of ‘star students’ in your learning environment with our fun worksheet!

Begin your lesson with a talk about what star students look like. Why do we need them? What qualities do they have? Record these ideas on chart paper so students can use them as a model for when they complete the worksheet.

Ask students to model ‘star student’ behavior in short role play scenarios to demonstrate the expectations in your classroom.

This page is available in the Bonus Library of our Pond VIP membership.

We want star students in our learning space!
