i am going crazy!! first year teacher here and i see all 92 of my 1st graders at one time every day for P.E. and they are the WORST tattle tales in the world. i am tired of "jimmy pushed me," "so and so did this to me," "i don't know who it was but they kicked me." AHHHHH!! one of the teacher's says she has a picture of an ear that is hooked into the principals office so when a kid is coming to tattle, she tells them to talk to the ear and the principal can hear what they are saying. she says in some weird way the kids feel redeemed b.c they feel like someone has "heard" them. i find it humorous, but i am not for sure that it would effective for my gym. other reachers said they have "tattle reports" that the kids can fill out if it is REALLY important to tattle on the person. usually they won't even fill out the forms b/c its too much of a hassle. are there any other ideas out there? i am sooo sick of this.
