It's very difficult for students to only worry about themselves! I made a lesson to help with this very thing. Some kiddos just don't know any better. Many kiddos don't know the difference between an emergency and a tattle. I ALWAYS want my babes to know that their voices and feelings are heard. I try to ask them in a kind way if it's an emergency or a tattle. I never want to shoo them away. I like the idea of a tattling turtle or the tattling monster. I've never done it before, but do you think I should add it into my classroom???
Here's what I have for you:

The fight chant:
How do you deal with tattling in your classroom or at home?
