While this lesson is a tad juvenile for my fifth graders, our amazing counselor did a very similar one with kindergarten:
We are a be kind school and we are continually emphasizing be kind rather than glorifying bullying. Obviously we have a firm anti-bullying policy but we are trying to spotlight the positive behavior choices of students rather than continually talking about bullies. Many of our students crave adult attention, so we'd rather they act correctly than act up to capture our focus.

The challenge is to be extra kind to others on the fifth of every month. Go forth and spread good karma :)
