    I have always used the bucket filling techniques with my class but decided to look up some visual cards to hang in my classrooom! These cards are perfect!

  92. JB

    Jessica B

    These were great ideas to go with some excellent books! The bucket filler is really much fewer pages than it appears to be, though. The posters of ways to be a bucket filler take up most of the packet with color/ b&w and options in different sizes. I would prefer to make an anchor chart with the class than show my students posters. However, overall this is an amazing unit with great activities!
