Helps students learn what needs to be told to the teacher (getting hurt, bleeding, questions etc.) and what is tattling. I used a little turtle figurine and made him a home in a bowl with hay and a lid. Worked like a charm!
Telling Vs. Tattling Activity - Students can sort the examples under the "tell" or "tattle" categories. This activity teaches students the difference between tattling and reporting a real issue to an adult.
