Tattling! Yuck! Tired of your students running up and telling you every little thing? Trouble with tattling? Do you have students that need a Band-Aid for a teeny-tiny speck? Teach your students the 5 B’s! The 5 B's is a classroom management tool meant to reduce off task "teacher telling" and tattling. The 5 B’s help your students know when it’s appropriate to go to the teacher and what things a teacher needs to know about. This is a great product to use at the beginning of the year but can be started at any time. When my students come up to me at recess, for example, I hold up my 5 fingers and ask if what they are about to say is one of the 5 B's. Most of the time, they just go back and play. Fabulous!

The product includes:

★Individual posters of the 5 B's and tattling

★ An all in one poster

★Black and White posters so you can print on colored paper

This resource is helpful for:

✸Classroom teachers needing to set guidelines for tattling

✸Resource teachers wanting to stop tattling

✸Whole schools needing help curbing tattling!
