This spring, we are teaching our students (K-5) the difference between TATTLING and TELLING.
We are using a simple question, “Is it IN, OUT or BOTH?” This question is designed to help students determine if they are tattling or telling. We want to be told the telling…. NOT THE TATTLING.
Spring brings renewed skills in tattling … which in turn creates a great deal of drama on the playground. We also want to encourage all of students to TELL if they see something happening that is not safe.
See the image below for background on the differences between the two.
