Tired of Tattling? Have your students fill out Tattle reports instead! I've used these with both first and fifth graders and they are a wonderful way to reduce the constant tattling! Look through them when you have a chance and handle the issues that need handling.
You can use a small mailbox, a jar, a can, or whatever container you have available. You can have a designated time when students are allowed to write their tattles or make it available all day.
