Teachers all know students who won’t take “No” for an answer, who pester and whine for the things they want, or who get emotional and angry during disagreements with adults and peers.

In this companion guide to her picture book,&nbspI Just Don’t Like the Sound of NO!, author Julia Cook has created 24 activities for students in grades K through 6 classrooms that teach the important social skills of how to “Accept ‘No’ for an Answer” and “How to Disagree Appropriately.” In addition to being challenging and entertaining, call upon students to use imagination, teamwork, and creativity to complete them. They also exercise children’s observation, reading, writing, thinking, and decision-making skills.

Each activity provides a list of materials when needed and teacher instructions.
