When I taught first grade, I had a tattle box. The kids spent more time writing things down then it took. That title box made its way out very soon

I had a friend that always had a "Go tell the President" come back to the student and then the student would go stand in front of a poster of the President and tell him

I had a poster of Jack Sparrow and an old cell phone. You could call Captain Jack when you needed to vent. There was a similar poem on the wall. It hot used mostly after lunch recess and some days the line was 10 kids long.

When I taught kindergarten, I did a tattle box towards the end of the year. It was pretty hilarious! Plus, some kids just feel like writing it out so they decided to let it go.

I know a teacher who assigned the job as a "Tattle Taker" Basically they were in charge of the tattle book where the tattle-lee wrote down the tattle. The tattle-lee had to write down the time and the date of the tattle. The Tattle Taker simply kept the tattle book in his/her desk until it was needed. Most of the tattles were hilarious. "She was looking at me when I was reading." "He said that my mom has a butt."

The problem I have with this whole thing is that children must feel listened to so I do explicitly teach the difference between telling about an "emergency" vs. telling about something else. Emergencies are defined as blood,barf,bully,burning up,barf..these are the "B emergencies." I have a class meeting every day where kids can tell about problems where they feel hurt and no adult has helped them with the hurt. We learn how to deal with some problems by ourselves and how sometimes adults need to help with problems.



Teachers can and should help children to feel listened to. If a tattle occurs during a meeting I ask if the problem is an "emergency" or can the problem be solved by walking away from the person.
