I have a class that is majority girls. 16 girls and 9 boys. The drama this year has been CRAZY!!
I swear every time I turn around, there is another problem that has arose between two of my girls. They are best friends and then out of nowhere they are sobbing over something one of them said to the other. Then, two days later, they are friends all over again. Something that ruined their life two days ago, suddenly means nothing.
To combat this, I made a tattle report. It is two pages long and requires quite a bit of time to fill out. If they REALLY wanted to tattle, they would fill out the whole thing. It can only be filled out once all their work is done of course. This worked for about two weeks.
Now, they fill it all out like it’s nothing. They don’t care if they could be doing something more fun, filling out that two page paper is more important.
Last year, I had mostly boys. Almost reverse numbers as this year.
