Looking for a way to help children follow the rules? Need to curb tattling in a healthy way? Hoping to get your kids to use their words more?
These citizenship lessons are designed to support your success in those areas! :)
Lesson 1: Following the Rules
Use anchor charts I've provided to lead a discussion on rules in the classroom. (SL.1; SL.3)
Lesson 2: Tattling & Telling
Use a video clip to discuss the differences between tattling and telling. Use anchor charts and role playing to help students practice scenarios in which something could be considered tattling or telling.(SL.2)
Lesson 3: Bug and Wish
Use this lesson to help students gain independence with talking to others about things that bother them. Use the hands on tools and role playing cards for practice. (SL.6)
There are writing extensions to deepen the learning and also a fun craft to do at the end of the unit. I start every year with this tool and it's been such a wonderful help to setting up my classroom community.
If you love this unit...you're also going to love my follow ups to this! ;)
