Bucket Filler 20 minute class assembly about kindness and caring based on the book by Carol McCloud

Bucket Filler 20 minute class assembly about kindness and caring based on the book by Carol McCloud

Did you know that everyone carries an invisible bucket that can be filled by doing kind things? This 20 minute assembly is based on the book ‘have you filled a bucket today?’ by Carol McCloud (an amazing book that I would recommend to any teacher). There are enough short speaking parts for a class of 30+ and the script is fully editable. Your children will introduce the concept of bucket filling and dipping to their audience. Through short drama pieces, they will demonstrate the benefits of bucket filling and the negative impact of bucket dipping. So, ask yourself, have you filled a bucket today?

Self-confidence colouring affirmation cards

Self-confidence colouring affirmation cards

Self-confidence affirmation cards for teachers and teens - colour in, reflect and really believe with these 10 colouring affirmation cards! Self-confidence is a fundamental factor in success and many of our youth in this day and age are lacking that self-belief they can succeed. We often hear "I can't do this", "I'm rubbish at this", "I can't do it on my own, you have to help me"... What some teachers have tried to do is introduce positive affirmations that students are to repeat over and over again. The idea is nice, but does it really work? Does saying something make it true? Well, at best we might get a temporary high or feel motivated for a short time, but in the long term it’s less likely to have lasting effects and that's because we are actually missing a very important step. Now picture yourself being the teacher who is able to help their student really believe these affirmations. Your students are able to believe it because you're helping them see the truth in these statements for themselves. With this pack of 10 affirmation cards, you can be that teacher. You will be giving your students some quiet reflection time where they can color in positive affirmations, but they will also be reflecting on some very significant and tailored questions that will help them prove that the affirmation they are stating is the truth. In time, you will see their self-confidence begin to flourish and success will be inevitable thanks to your guidance! There are 10 different cards to choose from in this set. Each quote comes in both postcard and business card size, ideal for keeping in wallets, lockers and pin boards etc. These are designed to be coloured in and then folded in half and glued together to keep forever - you could even have them laminated for maximum longevity! ​The great thing about these being colouring affirmations is, one, it saves on ink and money (hooray!), two it allows time for mindfulness where your students can sit and relax for a few minutes reflecting on the statement and questions, and three it personalises each card to help your students connect with it more - seeing their doodles reminds them of how they were feeling when they were colouring it in and answering the questions in their mind! By spending time colouring these in, you will give your students time to be creative and then associate that feeling when they look at the cards again in the future. It’s all mind games and using the power of our brains to achieve our potential. These would even be effective on us as teachers too, so give them a try and give you and your students the opportunity to just focus, motivate and enjoy yourselves today – you deserve it!
