My interpretation on that passage: Nellie is angry because she can't get her own way. Instead of sucking it up and playing with the other girls, or flouncing out at that moment, she lashes out at Laura. In doing so, she confirms that she's a spoiled brat who actually doesn't have as much power in the schoolyard as she thinks she does.

(If you missed the books or the show, Nellie was the girl whose parents owned the one general store in the town. She's shown as being more affluent than her peers, and clearly thinks that this should give her power at her school.)</p>

It's amazing how many Nellie Olesons there are, and how many people related to Laura Ingalls' conflict with her. It certainly affected Alison Arngrim, who played Nellie on TV.
