I started using a "peace table" in my classroom. I created a designated area with a small table to be the peace table. Whenever a student has a problem with another student they can invite them to the peace table. While at the peace table the students can use the feelings statements to express what happened. It works so well with helping students develop skills on how to handle disagreements!! It takes some modeling and practice to start but so far it has minimized tattling so much!!!! Check out my peace table poster also!
