I think she like the way everybody in the collaborative classroom loves her because when she bullies other people they won't like her any more.
Thats a really good prediction Henry!!
When somebody is bullied, they don't like them, so it is regular that they don't like them.
Henry is a little off track. She bullies the others because she is jealous of the other kids, not so they don't like her.
i agree she always is mean to people and never has any friends because she bullies people
I think that effects lexie because she wants the attention. I also think lexie acts like that because she wants to be popular, and she will do anything so that can happen.
Andrew you are right all she wants is the attention and I totally agree with what you said.
I had the same idea
I see why you said that and you may be right. I think that lexie has a mental disorder too and she feels like she belongs there
Great job Andrew. I absolutely agree with you she wants to be popular and get everybody to be on her "side". good job.
Yea I never thought of it that way I agree
I agree too. lexie just wants all the attention so she could make more friends and become more popular
AGREED to the end of agreeingness
In Because of Mr. Terupt, that statement has something to do with her being mean to others because that means that she is self centered. This means that she doesn't care about anybody but herself and she could careless about others. That is why she is doing the good cop bad cop.
I thought about it that same way P.S. What does good cop bad cop mean?
She is pretending that the other is mean to make herself seem nice
i like the good cop bad cop idea
Lexie likes to be treated with care, this is why she likes the kids in that class because all of them love her. But kids in her homeroom do not like her even though they follow her they still hate her. Thats why I think Lexie is mean to people in her homeroom.
I agree with Karn because I also believe Lexie likes the kids in the collaborative classroom because they like her so she's nice to them.
I think that statement has something to do with why Lexie can be so mean is because she feels self conscious that other people wont like her for who she is and she can't stand that. I also think she has to intimidate everyone so the won't judge her. I think someone has bullied her in the past and she doesn't want it to happen again so she just has to trick people so they wont judge her on who she really is, what she wears, and what she sounds like.
that's similar to what I came up with.
I think that the resoning behind this responce is very true. Lexi might think if shes mean pwople cant juge her.
I agree with every one broskis
I don't really think so, because just because people like or don't like her shouldn't have her act the way that she does.
I agree with you her words can't make up for her actions
I agree. Lexie shouldn't bully people to like her. The kids would actually be scared and dislike her I think.
i agree with you joy because its true that if people like her or dislike her effect on how she treats people.
I think that lexie is mean to people in the classroom because when she sees kids that are so happy it makes her happy
I always knew smiles can make happiness spread, but I was especially surprised it happened to lexie.
I think you need a little more thought like using better vocabulary. And also making it a bit longer.
I think that Lexie wants people to like her and the kids in the Collaborative Classroom do. I think that Lexie is afraid that people won't like her thats why she's being mean so people don't leave her and be mean to her.
haun described lexies problem perfectly. lexie wants people to like her and the kids in collaborative classroom do. lexie is afaid to be disliked so she is mean.
I agree with Haeun because I also think Lexie is being mean because she doesn't have want to be left out. I also think she's scared she won't have any friends.
I think Lexie is mean to others because the kids in the collaborative classroom were nice to her so she was nice to them what I think Lexie should do is say sorry to the girls in the class for the mean things she did and the girls will be nice to her that is why I think Lexie is mean to others
I didn't think that one of the reasons she was nice to the people in the collaborative classroom because they like her but now that I'm thinking about it I think you are right.
I like the part when you typed that she is being mean to everyone so that they could respect her.
I think that is really good and I never thought about it that way with the special needs kids
i like the description
I do think that it has something to do with the mean-ness because she hurts the girls with other girls secretly using the other girls' fake words and then "comforts" the girl that she hurt with another girl's fake words. There is proof that Alexia needs friends so she hurts girls' felling secretly, then comforts them.
I agree because it doesn't seem that Lexie actually has friends.
Awesome name !
I also agree
i think this statment does have something to do with why lexie can be mean to others because she she is nice to the people that are nice to her and mean to the people that are mean to her thats why i think tis statment has something to do with lexie being mean to others
I think the kids like her because she is nice to the kids because she knows that the kids have special needs. Lexie is mean to the regular kids probably because she just feels bad about herself.
I think that you are right about that she just feels bad for herself.
I do not think the same way but you have a great comment, the way I think is lexie has some mental disorder too so she is nice to the people in the other class
i agree with you because she never feels bad for the people in the regular class and only the special class.
I like your thinking and I agree with you.
I think it might have a thing to do with why she does that. Lexi might have problems at home. At home her parentes could not care about Lexi orb they might be mean to her. So when her groop goes to the clabarating class she feels like every one loves her and theres no worries, but when shes in her homeroom class she has to make people feel how she feels. Sad hurt and alone with no freinds because it makes her feel better.
I never would have thought of that ;)
I never thought of lexie having mean parents. I always thought lexie was mean because she had no friends and she wanted to change that.
i agree with you because she never has any friends and just bullies people to make her feel good about herself
I really like what Jeanna said it was amazing and it might be what the author was trying to tell you. Lexie might be having trouble at home so she feels safe in the collaborative classroom so she nice to the kids in that classroom. But she wants others to feel just as she's feeling.
I think that she used to be bullied herself one time. Then maybe one time she "accidentally" bullied someone and became in charge.
I really liked the way you thought about it with lexie being bullied before
When she was bullied, she felt bad. So she bullied others so she felt better
I think Walden hase a point that Lexi all the suden became incharge when she stude up to someone.
I agree with that never thought of it that way
Yes,because when she is being mean it means jealousy is going on. No one likes here because she's being mean to everyone in the hallways and recess but behaving so well in class to everybody. Lexie likes being in the Collaborative Classroom because she is not cruel to them because she knows they have disabilities.
I agree with most of what you said just I don't believe that she is always good in the class room
I think the Dream's response was accurate about Lexie. She was nice to the kids with disabilities but always turned on others because of jealousy.
Awesome name !!
I think that it does have to do with her being mean to others because she doesn't want to feel like someone is going to say mean things about her. But many of her class mates don't understand that and think she is just plane mean
I think that you are correct because she is very self-conscious.
I totally agree with you about when you said, she doesn't want
to feel like someone is going to say mean things about her.
Also I liked the way you said she is just plan mean, because its true.
i like the detail from the book
I don't agree with you zeke because it shouldn't effect on how someone treats people if they just want friends.
she should just show people who she really is and maybe she would get more friends.
I think that statement has to do why Lexie is mean to others because when she is mean to others they don't like her. But the kids love her in the collaborative class room cause she is nice to them. If she is nicer to others they will want to be her friend. But if she keeps acting the way she is soon people won't want to be her friend. That is why i think that statement has something to do with Lexie being mean to others.
Could agree. Thanks for putting that up
I thought your comment had a lot of detail and
I agree with you about why Lexie is mean to others and people don't like her. I agree with you because the kids don't know she's
I think that that statement has something to do with why she is so mean to others because it lets us know that all she wants is for everyone to like her. It helps explain why she is so mean to others because it helps us understand that she doesn't think people will like her just for herself, so she feels like she has to lie to get others to like her. One example of this is when on the first day of school, she tells Jessica that Danielle has been saying mean things about her even though she hadn't, but in order to get Jessica to like her, she lied by giving her information that she knew would want to make her stay close to Lexie. Also, this example shows that she is unsure of herself, and to make herself feel better, she puts others down.
I like how you included why she wants everyone to like her.
I think Lexi likes be in the room because She likes how the kids treat her. Examples from the book are it said that one of e kids likes how she wears the feather boa. And she is wondering if she can put lip gloss on Emily.
I agree, Lexie wants people to like her so she likes to be in the collaborate classroom where all the kids like her.
I think you did an amazing job explaining it. It was well written. Amazing job :)
I think Morgan is right that Lexi likes how every one treats her.
I agree with you but I also think there is more to it, like how she's mean to people like Daniel,(she called her a cow) but in this class she doesn't have to be mean for people to "like" her.
I agree that she likes Emily cause they are both girly girls
I said the same thing about the
feathered boa, she does like the way the kids treat her and when
she is mean, the kids don't know.
I agree with you because only by the way she dresses and appears, makes the kids instantly want to be her friend. Its seems as if she wants to clone the kids and make them her little Lexie followers.
I think Lexie is mean to kids who don't like her because she wants everyone to like her and be her friend. The special needs kids like Lexie so she is not mean to them. I think she used to gave no friends so she started to be mean to people and said I'll keep being mean to yiu until your my friends. For example, after she left the collaborative classroom she was talking about people behind their back and she definitely didn't do any of that in the collaborative classroom.
I like how you wrote this. I never thought of it that way. Great job!
I do not think the same way as you but I see why you think this way. The way I think is that lexie is nice to the kids in collaborative classroom is because she has a mental disorder too so she is nice
I agree with you because the kids in that class love everybody who is actuary nice to them and try to take care of them. I guess with you that she just was surprised at first that they were probably one of the only people who actually liked her without her saying anything.
I agree with you. Bullies usually have no friends, also they usually want respect. She wants to hide her mean attitude with a mask and pretend to be nice. I agree, she does remove her mask after leaving the collaborative classroom, and shows how she really is, mean.
I agree with you because in the book Lexie bullies Ana, Jessica, and Danielle because they aren't her friends. Only when Jessica became her friend she became nice to her. Because the kids in the collaborative classroom loved her she was nice to them.
I think this does have something to do with her being so mean. I think at home she is not appreciated as much as a normal kid would. I think she enjoys being mean because that is the only interesting to do for her. So being loved by those kids is like a vacation form discrimination.
I think Lexie likes Collaborative class because she is getting positive attention from the kids in that class. She likes the class because she fits in and she is comfortable with the children who need her help. She felt loved no matter what. Joey hugs Lexie without being asked. Danielle sees Lexie being real patient with Emily. The children in the collaborative classroom do not judge her, but outside this classroom she probably feels she is judged by the other kids and not liked by them. So she lets out her feelings and insults them by saying mean things about them to her so-called friends and enemies.
I like how you added an example of Danielle.:)
I think you are absolutely right, Anan.
I think Lexie thinks that everyone loves her she thinks she's so popular. Some kids in the Collaborative Classroom like her feathered boa and they thinks she's nice. I think she's nice to the kids in the Collaborative Classroom because she knows they are special, and the kids in her class are just normal. They don't have a special gift like the kids in the Collaborative Classroom.
I agree with you because not only that they are special and her peers are not, but she hasn't made an impression on them and she wants them and the whole school to like her and be her slaves. So I think for now, she will be nice and sweet to them, but then once she has them persuaded she will make the whole Collaborative Classroom hers and hers only.
I think lexie is mean to others and friendly to the kids in the other classroom is because she has some type of mental disorder that no one knows about and she wants to keep it a secret so people don't be mean to her. She acts nice to the other mental disordered because she knows how it feels and she feels like she belongs there
Wow I never would have thought of that in a million years. That is a really interesting way to think about it
i think because she is very mean to others it adds on to her having no friends. and she likes being in the collaborative classroom because she is loved and is not mean to the people in there. i think if she were nice in her own class she would most likely have friends.
I totally agree
i think so too. If she was nicer toward people, they might actually like her.In my opinion, i don't think the kids in the collaborative classroom would like her if they knew how they treated people, especially Jessica, Anna, Jefferey, and Danielle.
Love this piece. Nice way to think of it that way
I think so too. If the kids were always nice to each other, every body would like every body.
I think this statement has something to do with why Lexie can be so mean because when people don't want to be friends with her she starts to be really mean to them. An example is when Jessica didn't want to be friends with her and wanted to be friends with Daniella, Lexie made up stories that Jessica was calling Daniella fat behind her back.
I like your explanation and your example
well lexie has a bunch of problems with her family so she try's to get friend even if it means hurting peoples feeling.
I think you did a good job. you have good grammar and punctuation. I think you should make it a little longer but over all good job.
It actually should be E-DOG
The statement "Lexie likes being in the Collaborative Classroom because the kids in the class love her," has something to do with why she can be mean to others. Lexie enjoys being loved by others, she is the diva in the story. When she is being mean, she probably has a message in her brain that says: "Listen to me, like, I am the boss here. Everyone should, like, listen to me." Lexie is selfish and spoiled. When she is pushed around, she always tries to make herself in the spotlight. Because the kids in the collaborative classroom love her, she takes it as an advantage and takes charge.
You did a wonderful job. It was very detailed and descriptive. I was great! :)
I agree with you about the kids in the collaborative classroom. The fact that the students love makes her feel really good about herself.
I think it does have something to do with her hurtful attitude. From personal experience, I've learned that bullies only do what they do because they feel inferior to others and instead of being the lesser girl, they think they should empower others to make them feel better about themselves. If you persuade others that you are better then them, you start acting like you are even though you are not. The only time Lexie is the actual bigger person is when she is in the Collaborative Classroom because those kids have special needs and she does not. Knowing that, helps her tell herself that she is the best, and nothing but the best.
I agree with you Hadara. She is only the bigger person when she is in the collaborative classroom. But, that doesn't make her a nice person because she is nice to them. Like Aristotle once said " Excellence is not a singular act but rather a repeated one. Therefore, you are what you repeatedly do."
I had the same thinking process also.
I agree with you. It is true that bullies start their bad attitude with feeling inferior to others.
I agree with your reason of what makes Lexie a bully. Because the kids love her she has more of a belief that she is the best.
People are usually mean when they are bullies and bullies are mean when they have no friends because they think frightening and bullying
will make them powerful and frightening. So when Lexie likes being in that classroom it shows that she is not used to being liked by anyone she is bullying.
I think that this statement points out why she can be so mean to others, because it seems as if she lashes out at other people when they are mean or hateful to her, but she seems as if because the kids in the collaborative classroom like her shes doesn't lash out nearly as much as she does to more opinion expressing people who try to keep out of the shenanigans and trouble that she causes.An example of this was that she started lashing out at Jessica because she tried befriending Danielle and becomes infamous in Danielle's mind because of Lexia's lies. An example of her being good with the collaborative classroom kids is when she tries to make friends with the kids because they are nice to her and don't be as hateful to her.
In the collaborative classroom the kids actually do love her. It is true that she doesn't show her mean attitude when people like her. Also, I agree that when students hate her, she springs at them and shows her anger (acts mean to them).
Lexie likes being in the Collaborative Classroom because all the students there loves her. I think that has something to do with why she is being mean to others. Judging from what has happened previously Lexi loves getting attention and adores being adored. She doesn't like when people don't listen to her and leave her group. And she is bosses people if they do follow her like a shadow ( being in her group of ). Danielle, Jessica, and Ana are all not in her group which makes Lexi become a bully outside of her house of adoration. Because of that, people try to stay on her side which gives Lexi an advantage to take the role of the boss and get people to do what she wants them to do. People are probably in her group under the fear that they will be bullied by Lexi.
I do think this statement has something to do with why lexie is so mean to others. She just wants some friends but doesnt know how to make them. So instead of going to someone and being nice she is mean to them. Just like she is mean to danelle, jessica, and anna soo lexie can have friends.
Meghan i like and agree with what you said, because all Lexie wants is friends so she can boss them around good answer!
Now that i think about it, i actually agree with you, and i think she is being nice to the kids in the collaborate classroom just so she has some friends.
I think that is right and she is nice to the Collaborative Classroom kids because they like her no matter what.
no because just because people like her shouldn't effect on how she treats people. She always bullies Daniel and calls her names.
I agree with your thinking and like the example ;)
I disagree because she's peaceful to the kids in C.C but not to her classroom. She misbehaves with them because of jealousy.
i think Lexie likes being in that classroom because she likes how all the kids like her, even though she is mean to other people.
Nick I think nicks awnser is good he explained the same thing I did she was mean to the other girls so she's mean to them
Michael I think is awnser is correct that was not what I put down but I think it is true
John maybe is right she is just being ice to them because they are in the classroom
I think this statement has something to do with being mean others because she wants all of the attention. she doesn't really respect anybody espacially if you turn down on her. except if you've been her friend and always will be
I think that Lexie want the attention of the kids in the collaborative class room because she really wants attention and will do anything for some attention. And yes I think that it dose because it shows how much she really wants attention form people.
Lexie should be nice to the other kids. Her feelings shouldn't hurt other people's feelings.
i think lexi likes being in the collaborative class because no matter what she says to anyone outside of the classroom they dont care as long as shes nice to them. And i agree with you jules, if she wants to have friends maybe she should be nice instead cause when shes mean it drives them away and then over time she won't have any friends left.
I didn't think of it that way Micheal as if she was unsure. And by the way actually she convinced Jessica with her lies but the next month Jessica tried to become friends the next month so that was not quite what happened on the first day. I also completely agree about the part were she bullies others to make her more sure of herself. Finally next time try to also include a second detail
