I am so fed up with my students tattling on each other! It is constant and it's driving me insane! They tell if someone looks at them funny, budges in line, accidentally steps on their foot, etc. We have had numerous class discussions about this and I have talked until I was blue in the face about the difference between telling (someone is hurt or doing something that the teacher really must know about) and tattling (the things I described above). It's just not getting through. Does anyone have any tricks or ideas that will take care of this problem? They left for Thanksgiving yesterday and two were tattling when they walked out of the door and I said, "just go". I can't listen to it anymore.
