What Would You Do for Yes Day?!
by Alana Pedalino and Hisami Aoki
Encourage your students to describe and draw their own dream Yes Day with this Scholastic Book Clubs–exclusive “response to literature” classroom activity inspired by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld’s Yes Day!
As a kid, it can feel like the world always says “no, no, no!” But what if kids had their very own Yes Day where they could do whatever they wanted?!
Let your students’ imaginations run wild with this classroom activity designed just for Yes Day!
Here are a few samples that the kindergartners in Karen Breitbart’s class and the second graders in Solange Ventura’s class at Imagine School in Weston, Florida, came up with for their Yes Day activity.
How did your students’ Yes Day creations turn out? What kind of things would they want to do? We’d love to hear from you! Please share on social media using the hashtag #ScholasticBookClubs.
