Students are famous for their tattle-tale stories. Teachers are often tired of hearing those stories. I saw a cute activity online for students to make for the classroom and something that will listen to their tattle-tale stories.
The Tattle Tale Monster. Use an old tissue box. At the opening where the tissues came out, cut zigzags to be the monster mouth. Paint the box any color of choice. Add some spots or lines to decorate the monster face. Paint two big eyes at the top of the box.
Put the Tattle Monster on the shelf or somewhere the students can see it. The next time students are about to tell on a friend, remind them to go tell the Tattle Tale Monster.
This Tattle Monster will work in classrooms and even at home. Give it a try.
