Tattling - Is the Tattle Tale problem in your class driving you nuts? This unit helps students determine when they should tell and when they are just "tattling". It is a perfect social unit for PreK - 2nd grade. It begins with an interactive powerpoint "thumbs up" and "thumbs down" lesson. This tattling lesson is a great place to begin. Also included is a simple social story dealing with tattling, some activity pages, anchor charts/posters, and a fun reminder for students to remember not to tattle. This fun visual is a tattle tale horse. If a student "tattles", then a piece of the horse tail must be taken down. If the class tattles so much that the horse loses its entire tail, then they do not earn the class reward, but if they can remember to use different strategies to solve problems besides tattling, and the horse keeps its tail, then the class can earn a small reward such as stickers or a small piece of candy.
