This is a resource to help kindergarteners (or any other young grade) tell the difference between tattling and reporting. Including are a variety of teaching tools to help a teacher explain the difference.
Short Book: Explains what the difference is in simple terms and gives some examples where students have to decide if the character should report or not.
Act It Out! Cards: Give a situation that two students can act out to practice how they should respond to common early elementary social situations.
Posters: There are three colorful posters that remind students of the four questions they should ask themselves to decide if they are tattling or reporting. (Is it an emergency? Is someone sick, hurt, or crying? Did I try to solve the problem on my own? Am I trying to get someone in trouble?)
Class Book: A class book where students make two pages each. One to show when they should report and one to show when they should NOT tattle. At the end is a short promise and signature page.
Enjoy! Let me know what you think. =)
