Telling vs. Tattling?

Inappropriate Way:
Frankie [is scribbling on a paper while the teacher is saying “everyone draw a flower”]
Daisy [looks over and sees Frankie scribbling and says:] “Teacher, Frankie is just scribbling, he is not drawing a flower”

Appropriate Way:
[Frankie is busy drawing when Daisy approaches.]
Daisy: “Give me that paper, that’s an ugly picture Frankie”
[Frankie tries to ignore Daisy.]
Daisy [pushes Frankie, grabs the paper and crumples it up]: “I said give it to me, you better listen from now on” [Daisy pushes Frankie again]
Frankie [begins to cry and says:]Stop it”
Zawar [who is watching this goes to get a teacher:] “Teacher, Daisy is hurting Frankie”
