I re-pinned this tattling activity from Rachelle at What the Teacher Wants. My kiddos had quite a bit of trouble refraining from tattling before Spring Break. I thought this would be a great lesson to use to re-teach my class about big problems (issues the teacher needs to handle) vs. small problems (issues students can handle themselves).
This inferencing activity has SEVERAL blogs that have linked and re-created it. I found the idea on Pinterest from Coconut Cutie's Classroom who found it from StrongStart who in turn found it from ChildCareLand.com. Whew! Good ideas are contagious! However, Coconut Cutie's Classroom created a free printable that I'm using to re-create my own set!
My First Grade Team has decided to teach a Fairy Tale, Folk Take, and Nursery Rhyme unit this nine weeks. Next week we are planning to study The Princess and the Pea, Rapunzel, Stone Soup, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Strega Nona as a part of our European folklore week. I thought this collage along with a sequencing writing activity would be an awesome activity after we read Stone Soup by Marcia Brown.
I'll be back to post some more Pinterest inspired ideas that I am collecting for after Spring Break!
