Today JAS went to watch the NED Show. The NED Show is all about teaching kids to never give up, encourage others and do your best. The man told us a story about Ned and while he was telling us the story he did lots of amazing tricks with a yo-yo.
To become a champion at school or outside of school, you need to never give up when things get a little hard or you don’t know what to do. You also need to encourage others because if you treat people how you want to be treated, they’ll treat you back in the same way. By encouraging others, we make other people happy which then makes us happy. Finally, you always need to do your best because it can help us learn. We need to remember that even when we make a mistake we can learn from it, fix it up and keep trying. We all make mistakes and that what helps us learn.
Here is a link for you to check out and learn some cool yo-yo tricks for yourself!
Today we read a book called Have You Filled A Bucket Today? The story taught us about how we all carry an invisible bucket around and when people to nice things to us, it fills our bucket and makes us happy. When we fill someone else’s bucket, we become a bucket filler. But people can also dip into our buckets and make us feel sad when they are not nice to people. These people are bucket dippers.
We have decided that we are going to be a bucket filling classroom and have made our very own buckets that we can help each other fill by being kind and supportive! Here’s our list of things we can do to be bucket fillers:
Let some join in our games
Smile at someone
Say hello to someone
Share our toys with others
Help someone if they need it
Be nice to people
Play together nicely with our friends
Meet and make new friends
Being friendly to people
Say good morning and good afternoon to people
Tell your family you love them
Use our manners
Read books together
Say nice and kind things to people
By filling someone else’s bucket, you also help to fill your own. So we are going to be bucket fillers! What about you?
Here’s a video you can watch to help you learn more about becoming a bucket filler!
