Tattling

Tattling is a natural part of being a first grader. I usually listen to my first graders and then ask them "What can you say to your friend?" or
"Did you tell your friend how you felt?". This way I'm helping the children learn ways to help themselves within the classroom. If you ignore the child, then you are teaching them that their concerns are not important. Therefore, the annoying tattling continues in the classroom.
