Teach your students the difference between “tattling” and “telling” with this comprehensive teaching presentation.
What Is the Difference Between Tattling and Telling?
Let’s face it… Kids love to share their problems with anyone who lends a sympathetic ear. However, teachers all around the world will tell you that there is such a thing as oversharing! We must teach our students from an early age that there is a difference between the problems they can solve themselves and those they need help with. This, in essence, is the difference between tattling and telling.
- Tattling is when you complain to an adult about something someone has done or something that has happened.
- Telling is when you inform an adult about something someone has done or something that has happened.
They sound similar, but they are very different!
