Wow - mean girls in lower elementary? That makes me sad. I have had one or two, but not a group. I believe there is hope to open their eyes and hearts at this young age. Too bad they can't be split up next year.

Have you rewarded acts of kindness? Stickers/chart/note from you.
Or "bucket filling'"? Books: How Full Is Your Bucket and Have You Filled a Bucket Today? Or create a poster of kindness and spend a couple of minutes at the end of the day recording acts of kindness you or the students took note of during the day.

Maybe you could write stories about animals that act in similar ways to your mean girls, without calling anyone out, and have the children discuss in small groups questions that you pose.

I wish this board got more traffic so you could get a lot more ideas.
