If you’re exhausted from students constantly tattling on each other (and what elementary school teacher ISN’T?), check out the tips I shared in this radio interview hosted by Charity Prestonof TBA Today Blog Talk Radio. Here are the questions I addressed in this 15 minute broadcast:
1) What causes children to feel the need to tell on each other?
2) How can we encourage kids to talk to one another about their problems instead of involving the teacher?
3) How can we teach kids the difference between tattling and telling?
4) What’s the best way to respond to instances when students DO continue to tattle?
(If you can’t see/access the embedded audio above, go here to listen.)
The program airs live every Sunday night at 8 pm EST and there are some wonderful guests and topics coming up! Click here to check out upcoming TBA radio episodes and play previously recorded episodes.
