Tattle Tongue Strikes Again!

I have been receiving many counseling requests from my students in second grade.  After looking through their slips, I found that many of their problems could be easily solved using Kelso's Choices and other strategies we've practiced in guidance.  I thought reading A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue by Julia Cook would be an appropriate intervention (see previous post).

I went over two posters with students that they can go to for help (which I found on Pinterest).  Teachers posted these in the classroom as a visual aid.

These reinforce to students the criteria for when it's considered reporting or tattling.  Then, students read through the prompts on a tongue and colored each spot purple if it would be tattling or red if it would be reporting.


  1. Could you post the tattle tongue worksheet? It looks great!

    1. I only received a hard copy of it from my mentor a few years ago. Let me see if I can scan it in and make it available to download. :)
