tattle tales

Clip to ScrapBook #15

I have used the same book for years and still have a lot of pages left. I have a "Tattle Tale Book" . When children start complaining a lot and just want to get other children in trouble, I tell them that I have a lot of work to do and to go write it in the Tattle Tale Book. I tell them that I will read it at the end of the day. They get to air out their side of the story and I get to go on with what I plan to teach. For some it takes more to write it out and they decide themselves that it really is not that much of a big deal. After some time has gone by the bickering dies down and that fire was put out.

Hope it helps.
