When I left school on Friday I was determined to plan a lesson all about tattling, kindness and what defines a "real" problem. We are even tattling on each other for our coat sleeves brushing against each other as we put our coats on at the end of the day! Seriously?! A few weeks ago I was visiting a friend at another school and she had a great visual for "problem sizes" that her speech therapist made for one of her kiddos (thanks, Rebecca!). I tried my best to recreate it tonight because we need all the help we can get! I hope you are all surviving the dead of winter!

Drama, Drama! Fighting Cabin Fever in the Dead of Winter
Ever since we got back from winter break, my class has seemed to have a BIG case of cabin fever! With the bitter cold and the nonstop snow, we haven't even been able to go for a walk outside! I truly believe that because I have a small class, it is so much easier for the kids to get on each other's nerves because they are always around each other. We are like a family. Since we haven't had the chance to run around outside on the playground at the end of the day, we've been going a little bonkers inside our classroom. The result? A lot of tattle-taling and drama about things that aren't important!
