Nathan loves to tattle but it was hurting him so he had to fix it.

1) This ook is all about understanding the differences between unnecessary tattling and the impossibility of warning others about important matters.

You can easily create a lesson on tattling in comparison to telling to go along with this tory.

For the information on the anchor chart, I would have them turn and talk with their partner to discuss what a " tattling " situation entails in comparison to a " tel " situation.

Although it may have been a dream, this is n't explicitly said and the notio is that his teacher sneaks into his roo at night and 'helps' him.

Its not a great message to give children that they ca n't trust their parents but they can trust someone who sneaks into their bedroom at night.
