First we read the Juice Box Bully book which is about a boy who moves to a new school and bullies others. This continues until the class promise (to be an upstander and not allow bullying behavior) wins him over. We then sorted pre written cards into the three categories Bully, Buddy or Just Mean ( 1 time event).
After sorting, the children were given a Buddy or Bully page for the grinch that they filled out and we tallied their votes. According to our vote , the Grinch was just 'mean' because a bully does negative behavior all the time and the Grinch only stole once then gave it back.
