Don't Squeal Unless It's a Big Deal: A Tale of Tattletales


The piggies in Mrs. McNeal's class are having a day filled with tattling.  Seems like every little piggie is doing something to every other little piggie and they are all turning to the adults to solve the problems.  There are 19 students in the classroom and 19 little tattling piggies, too.  In fact, there is a whole lot of squealing going on.

When is it the right time to come to an adult and when is it better to figure out how to solve the problem on your own?  When is something important enough that it needs to be "told" and when is something small enough that you can solve it yourself?  When they are telling on you for picking your snout or calling your desk a pig sty, does the teacher need to know?

These little piggies are about to see the difference for themselves when their teacher falls down and they need to get some help for their true emergency.
