    I teach third grade and I had the same problem. Then one day when a student came up to me and started to say that another student was doing something wrong, I stopped her and said " Are you telling or tattling?" She looked puzzled and I said that telling is when someone is in trouble (needs help) and tattling is when you are trying to get someone in trouble. This has worked for me. Just a suggestion.
