We then played a game I called "Pin the Tongue on the Josh!". I came up with this idea from a lesson in Youth Light's Classroom Guidance Games called Pin the Face on the Tattle. However, I decided to make it more directly related to the book we all just read. So I copied 2 faces of Josh out of the Bad Case of Tattle Tongue: Activity Book and colored them in. I then hand drew some tongues and colored some in yellow with purple spots and others in pink or red.
For the game I read the situation cards from the Youth Light activity and the students had to decide if the scenario was tattling or reporting and choose the appropriate tongue. I then blindfolded them and spun them around a couple times and they needed to find the appropriate Josh to pin the tongue on. I would always tell them that the tattle tongue is on the left and regular or reporting tongue is on the left.
I also had the students complete this FREE worksheet I found on TpT from Bringing Back MayBerry. The students had to recall a tattling scenario from the book and draw it and then draw a tattling situation that happens in school.
The kids loved this activity so much we did it for 3 group meetings!!! I LOVED it too, such fun and they were still learning about the differences between tattling and reporting.
