This year I have tried a variety of of character education/discipline techniques in my class, but the one that is working the best for me is 'Bucket Filling'.  It goes along with these books:
I developed a pack of materials I have been using to help implement this program in my class.  Here is a peek at what's included:
Bucket Filler Activities: 
Guide for ‘How to Implement a ‘Bucket Filling’ program in your classroom
Parent Letter to send home explaining the program
Pages of buckets to print off to use individually.  Place in a pocket chart, on library pocket cards on a poster board or on a bulletin board.  Offered in both color and black and white to print on colored paper {ink saving option}
Warm ‘fuzzies’ to be passed out to students who show bucket filling behavior.  
Anchor Chart materials:  Both bucket filling and bucket dipping behaviors are included.  Discuss the behavior and sort accordingly.  Pictures are included, as well.
Emergent reader: Helps to explain the program in simple language.
Class Poster
Awards for being a bucket filler, including an “I am a bucket filler’ necklace.

If you would like to take a closer look you can click HERE or on the cover of the pack.

I plan on doing a post in the near future about the success I have been seeing.  What I really love is how it teaches empathy for others.   It's good stuff!

Thanks for reading!  Have a great day.  :)
