|First Grade Guidance Lesson!|
I could have spent that time planning, but used it for evil and not good ; )
I am really excited for my finale lesson in first grade and wanted to show you all what I have been doing with them. The teachers requested that I do lessons on tattling vs. telling and also problem solving.
|A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue|
1. Be a Danger Ranger
If a person or animal is in danger, you must warn someone!
2. Be a Problem Solver
If the problem involves you, take charge and try hard to solve it
3. Now or Later?
Is the pronlem a "NOW" problem or a "NOT NOW" problem?
Can your problem be solved at a later time?
4. Mind Your Own Beeswax!
If the problem is not dangerous and it does not involve you....
DO NOT TATTLE!
I created the posters for each classroom to remind the students when it is okay to involve an adult. Now, we are talking about what it really means to be a problem solver. I stole this idea from the Kelso's Choice Curriculum- which has a conflict choice wheel. I made it smaller and more manageable for the students to remember. The students will be encouraged to try 2 solutions first before going to an adult for help. Solutions include:
-Use an "I" Message
-Say "I'm Sorry"
-Share and Take Turns
-Ask Them to Stop
We will be talking about each solution separately so the kids understand how to use them. I am very excited to be following through with these classes... the teachers are already using the Tattle Tongue rules in class and reminding their students of them.
It is awesome to have the teachers AND the student's buy-in. LOVE IT.
