Fills & Dips

This month the kindergartners are tracking how we treat each other.

Each time someone does something to please, support, or comfort another person, we take note of the positive action and place a red cube in a bin. We call instances of prosocial behaviors "Fills
." Antisocial behaviors are called "Dips." The inspiration for these terms comes from a children's guide  to happiness written by Carol McCloud titled, Have You Filled a Bucket Today?

Our first day out, anti-social behaviors outnumbers prosocial behaviors. As we began the morning today, we filled in the results from yesterday's data. It showed that more people felt "dipped" than "filled" by their classmates' behaviors.

Today the kids evened the score. Here's a photo of the results of today's tally. As you can see, red (prosocial) outnumbered the blues (antisocial).

We will see what tomorrow brings.

Be well.
