Tattling


One thing as teachers we can't avoid is tattling. I have tried several things in the past to minimize tattling. The one that worked the best was to have the students write down their tattles and place it in a basket/box. At the end of the day, I would select a few tattles to read out loud. I would make sure to pick tattles that would not embarrass anyone. We would then discuss the tattle and what could be done differently in the future. I recently came across a "Tattling Turtle" in a Really Good Stuff catalog. He's really cute!!!! It comes with a poster, turtle, basket and index cards to write down the tattles.
