We all know the saying "honesty is the best policy" so this "policy" continues on in a recent class visit with my 1st grade friends. I began with an open question to the class: "why should people tell the truth?" I got all kinds of interesting (& sometimes funny) responses. We then discussed potential consequences of what happens when people don't tell the truth (again, various types of responses). I wrote all the students' responses on the Promethan board to recap during the lesson.

After our game, I read an update of the book "The Boy Who Cried Wolf" and read a fun, updated version called "The Wolf Who Cried Boy". This book has the same message about being honest and it's so much fun to read and share with the class. Students see what happens to the wolf when he constantly does not tell the truth. I really enjoy doing this lesson!Pin It
