FREEBIE! Tattling is something that happens every year that wastes precious learning time! To get kids thinking about when it is okay to tell the teacher and when they need to solve problems on their own, I read Don't Squeal Unless It's a Big Deal and we discuss "kid-sized problems" and "teacher-sized problems."
This activity includes 2 writing prompt pages and 1 recording sheet that focus on these ideas. A quick and easy lesson to help students become thoughtful problem solvers.
