Tattle Questions- (song for kids about tattle-tales)
Use this song to generate discussion w/ your class about tattling and when kids should or should not tell the teacher something... Here are the questions:
1. Do I need to tell the teacher right now (or can it wait)?
2. Is someone in danger (physically or emotionally)?
3. Is this problem MY business (or am I being nosy)?
4. Am I trying to help (or just get someone in trouble)?
Please don't consider the song a be-all/end-all... I realize there may be other situations that come up in your class. This is just a discussion-starter.
