The No-No Board: What I say to my students!

no-no board
I've been asked what I say to my students when introducing
the no-no board...so here it is!
I work better with an audience..but it gives you an idea.


  1. Thanks for posting! Stick figure baby was seriously funny. The best antidote for all of this is drawing from life. The art room can be such a confining space. Don't you think? Getting out of the art room and bringing life into the art room is important but so hard! I think that the symbols kids used will be "replaced" with symbols teachers want them to use unless we show what things look like or give them experiences. After I give students the experience of observation I might expect a little more than a sun in the corner! That naughty sun!

  2. Humor before, humor after and humor in your message...that says it all. Thank you!

  3. That was great! I can just imagine you being animated and having fun with the kids in all of your classes.
    Thanks for sharing.

  4. Yay! Thanks Ted for posting this! I'm so glad you finally made it work :)

  5. I love the NO-NO's I been using them this year.. and the kids think they are great.. thanks so much

  6. I LOVE the no no board! I use those "no" things now but a board is a much easier reference!

  7. Awesome! Can I steal that idea and use it? You can steal from me if you want...

  8. Dani...feel free to use it! That is why I blog..share my experience & hopefully help some people along the way.

  9. Thank you for the video. I saw your No-No Board last year and though it was a great idea. I'm using it this year at my new school.
