Sick of Tattle Tales? Me too! So I came up with this solution which works out VERY WELL! I copy the two documents front to back, and cut them in fourths. Then I place them in a bin in a designated area of the room. Students are directed to fill out the "tattle tale" form if they need to tell me something they feel is "important." Once they have filled out the form, they place it in the "tattle tale box." Once a week I take all the tattle tales out of the box and recycle them. You do not need to read them (unless you want to laugh ;O) ). Having the "tattle tale box" also is a great way for students practice their writing skills.
