Tale telling, the telling of tales. The bane of my life. Obviously we need to listen to each child and let them air their disgruntlement, but when it is something really silly, which eats into class time, then it is infuriating. Especially if it transpires that the teacher on yard already dealt with the problem! It is one part of teaching I find tricky to manage. I have a record book which everything goes in to, but for the less serious issues, I simply play this song, we have a dance, and SHAKE IT OFF.

So far it is working. Thank you Taylor Swift![pb_builder]
