Bucket Fillers Freebie

I am so excited to start the Bucket Filler program with my third graders this year.  I created some signs that will go perfectly with my motif (polka dots galore) and thought I would share.  Grab them here!  Also, hop on over to First Grade Brain and join in the Bucket Filler linky party.  I am still undecided on how I will display the buckets.  Maybe stick on hooks, or the shoe organizer method.  I would love to see some pics if there are any other ideas. 



I just got these buckets in the mail today from Oriental Trading Company.  I will post pics of my Bucket Bulletin Board as soon as I can get in my classroom. 
If you are using library pockets you can download these paper buckets to use with your freebie set!

Thank you for sharing. This will be my 4th year bucket filling. The kids love writing & getting bucket filler slips (teachers do too!)

Love your blog! Couldn't find the same buckets you posted on your site from Oriental Trading. Do you remember what they were called (or their product number)? I can only find the pastel ones :( My classroom is decorated in primary colors so yours would match much better. Planning on putting the buckets into 2 hanging shoe organizers. Can't wait for it all to come together. Thanks for your help!
